No official announcement on "the fate of the EDP" as far as I can
recall. The EDP is built out of electronic components that are not
fully available today, so chances for a re-release seem pretty small.

However, you might remember that Matthias Grob said on this list that
he is working on a software version of his brainchild, the EDP looper.
I take that as a good sign, since this will be the first original
virtual EDP that uses the original EDP code. The existing looper
software, that copies and tries to emulate the EDP functionality, all
had to come up with new code for this. Although this means not totally
capturing the EDP feel, it has in some cases taken off into new
exciting directions - for example the scripting option of Mobius'.
