I would consider communication in December 2018 to be current.
No communication in two months is not my idea of an extended length of time. There is still room for an announcement of production in "early 2019."
I wasn't a part of the Kickstarter campaign, but I'm still hopeful that they will eventually come out with E6 products. The good news, in my mind, is that they haven't given up.
Still shooting film: Medium Format with assorted TLRs; 35mm with manual-focus Minolta SLRs and a Canonet.
