Things are still kind of in the same state, though we've come out with more stepper motor driver carriers. We continued experiencing A4988 chip shortages through most of 2012, which made building a more complex product around it less appealing. Now that we have a better stock situation and alternative components, I can repeat my refrain of "maybe this year"!
Are there any particular features you are looking for? Is there a product that you know of that is almost what you are looking for but has some shortcoming for your application?
