    Now I have approval for the Libre of prescription, I am considering pimping it with a Miaomiao but ...
    with version 2 due out soon (I thought it was April but clearly I was wrong) and it having additional data encryption, I want to be sure before wasting my money.
    So my questions are
    1. When is version 2 of the Libre planned to be released in the UK?
    2. Will Libre version 2 replace version 1 or will both be available for a while?
    3. How are the Miaomiao, xDrip and Glimp guys getting on with hacking the Abbot data encryption?
    4. Where can I get this information rather than hassling the forum every month?
    As was once expressed to me "thanks already beforehand" for your insights.

    Thanks for the tag @Knikki - I've not seen anything further as yet except that they feel that their new protocol will work once the transmitters are updated (full description in the post Knikki linked to above). Hopefully this will happen in the coming months as I understand this is a fairly global effort given the locations of the manufacturers, range of different sensor versions out in the wild etc.

    It seems that Marek Macner who has worked extensively on xDrip+ feels that this issue is resolved from the software side and is now moving on to tackling other issues to bring all the different tools we have together in some form. It's an attempt to resolve issues like Spike recently started experiencing from what he says and it's all in it's infancy still. There's a blog post explaining more here and social media accounts/groups have been set up at Twitter and Facebook if you'd like sources to keep up to date.

    After speaking to the Abbott rep at a Libre follow up review she said the v2 wasn't going to be available in the UK until 2020 when asked earlier in the year.
    Just been prescribed 6 months supply of Libre and if v2 is going to be available from June I'd have preferred just getting enough until June so I could switch to v2 from then.

    I bet there’s a few of us who’d want to swap v2 for v1 (if we’re using the transmitters) and vice versa if it’s launched soon!

    No need to switch back to Libre v1, now you can use new NightRider which works with Libre 2

    Ah, it’s no issue in the U.K., we’re still on version one and likely to be for some time.
