New Hero 7 Black Firmware?

Hi, does anyone know when the next Hero 7 Black firmware will be available? Will there even be one? Or are we stuck with what we have and GoPro has just abandoned supporting this camera? 

 

I have used one or two of the much older models in the past and they were great, i recently purchased (few months) Hero 7 Black and unfortunately, despite several complete factory resets, manual updates and approved SD cards it's still not really reliable and susceptible to freezes and quirky behaviour. 

 

Thanks for any info on this.

Hi

 

I hope SEPTEMBER. They propably will not risk and release FW in the middle of summer due to old rule:
