When can we expect new BIOS for MAXIMUS X Z370 boards?

ASUS Strix Z370 boards already have a new bios released updating ME to 11.8.55.3510 (didn't check if Intel RAID ROM has been updated to Version 16.5).
MAXIMUS X Z370 boards latest Bios Version 1602 ME version is still on 11.8.50.3470 and Intel RAID ROM is Version 16.0.

Can anyone from ASUS confirm that the MAXIMUS X Z370 series MB will get a new BIOS updating ME to 11.8.55.3510 and Intel RAID ROM to Version 16.5?
The Intel RAID ROM has been already been updated a couple of months ago to Version 16.5 from other Vendors like GigaByte..

The reason for starting this Thread is that i am worried that Z370 might get neglected in favor of the new Z390 series motherboards/
Any feedback would be appreciated..

THANKS..

Now.

On page of my Strix Z370 H (for some reason only on Win10 32-bit selection) there is this:

Version 1704
2018/10/02 9.62 MBytes
ROG STRIX Z370-H GAMING BIOS 1704
Improved system performance and stability.
Update ME FW to 11.8.55.3510
Update CPU Microcode

and similar thing seems to be on Maximus X Hero page as well.

Not showing for me on the support page for my Maximus X Code? Strange. 😕
