Dude, you need to let it go.  Nobody here knows, and the more posts you make about it the longer it's likely to take.  ;)

Etc.

TL;DR.  Ask Jens.  He's the only one that knows.  He's not on this forum, try contacting him through his website:  https://icomp.de/shop-icomp/en/news.html

Actually I emailed Jens with a tech question at the start of the summer, I asked about the ACA 500+ and I believe he said 3-4 months more.

On May 25th:

Jens kindly answered some A604 tech questions and when I asked about the ACA500+ he replied...

Working on it. The board is finalized and another prototype run
(hopefully the last) is already scheduled. I guess it's about 3 more
 months until I have a product to sell.

It was at this point I decided to buy an ACA 500 from an only Amiga enthusiast that frequents a certain IRC channel. When the new ACA comes out I will get that too!

Is the price on Amigakit.com the actual correct price?  $82?

Sounds like the ACA 500 original price but yeah I remember seeing the original for that much. Dunno if the new one will be more expensive.

In an email in which I was discussing another issue with him (dead Rapid Road), I asked him about the ACA500+ release date, and, he said "Before Christmas this year."

One thing I have learned with Jens products. "Slow and steady wins the race". I haven't been disappointed yet.

I can't wait for the A1200 reloaded.

I think that's safe to say that you'll know when they're available.  Amigakit tend to announce it when they have new products in stock.
