Such a list would be niche, you can already take a look on mechgroupbuys for any running or coming, they should also have some archives. ThocStock can also be used to finding instock boards, but otherwise generally not the greatest idea to have a list only for TKl

Thockstock and mechgroupbuys aren't updated often or at all (at least for keyboards).

These days most of the movement happens in discord only. You have to subscribe, to allow pinging from the annoucement channel, and have the android app installed or else you're out of the loop.

I've found it quite difficult to keep track of group buys, this is a seller market only.

Many sellers prefer to stay hidden in their discord space.

@handke - I have some interesting news.
Just visited the Keychron site again and realised they announced the K8 Pro.
Looks like the are now starting to make their "normal" range QMK compatible. And fortunately for you this is a TKL.
I am looking for a 65%.
I hope they may do the cross change to their Qx range as well. Means making them wireless.

K8 isn't super nice but the Qx tkl will surely be very nice. Nice update, thanks.

The keychron tkl is probably the Q3?
