He talks about the keycaps some here:

I'm guessing the new boards and the caps will be happening at the same time. 


Yes that's correct.

Eagerly waiting for the new thick blank PBT keycaps and Matias' new innovation about stabilizers for Alps keycaps - hope it has good backward compatibility.

And hope you're aware of the new Alps clones manufacturers in China - I am a supporter of the original SKCM and SKCL 'pine' design, just saying.
Wishlist: 1) hotswap gasket mount; 2) nice Alps blank caps; 3) Hipro Iris with adjustable tenting; 4) CNC POM case
More
Wishful-list: 1) All POM; 2) We order from keyboard-layout-editor.com; 3) Usable Trackpoint MK
IBM M13 black
IBM SpaceSaver II
IBM KPD8923 Trackpoint
Choc mini Gateron black
PLUM 84 'Topre-clone' 55g Korean dome
HHKB Pro 2 HasuBT
[It's not I don't like ISO, but I need the HHKB backspace... only ~90WPM, in love with Emacs, and Lisp]

Any updates on the keycaps? I would really love thick pbt keycaps for the custom keyboard I'm putting together right now.

The ABS keycaps on my 6 year old Mini Quiet Pro are getting awfully shiny now...  ;)

I've read in this other thread that there are PBT keycaps that passed tests!
I can't wait for PBT blanks for my keyboard! My ABS ones are really shiny too.

Yes, we were pretty sure we had all the production issues worked out on the last trip in November -- and then the pandemic happened, so now everything is in a holding pattern.

@Matias, Hi, I have been using the Quiet Pro for a few months, mainly because I needed the Numpad for work.
Then I also game on this keyboard and before I know it, the WASD keys are smudged. Is there a way to buy replacement WASD keys?

Do you honestly think we'll be getting the new caps and boards sometime this year, or do you think next year is more likely?
