Or is it going to be a one off that will fade off into the distance and become redundant once newer technologies come on the scene and Zebra3 is released?

As it's going to be bundled with a soundbank, you'll need to set up an account on our website to get temporary download links (see "Support" section) with future revisions.

I think Z3 will sound much more refined (if that's audibly possible), with more options to add character. Z3 won't sound the same as Z2, and presets might not be easily transferred.
I think most people will use both - Zebra2/ZebraHZ for the vast existing library, Zebra3 for things new and things to come.

silly me, done a bit of googling and realised we will be able to get it, but I have to ask when ? I am now clucking like a crack head chicken to try this thing

Just for interest. Is it possible to make dynamic optimization for Zebra: if whole signal chain before filter is mono (for example, just one osc with pan = center or eleven osc with pan = center and width = 0) then there is no need to calculate filter in stereo.
Although there will be problems with automated pan or width - there will be need to turn second channel of filter on/off dynamically. So may be it is worth to add "stereo/mono" switch for Osc (similar to FM) and other modules to force chain to mono.
Or may be to add "stereo/mono" switch to filter, and simply feed sum of channels to filter if mono is on.
It is very frequent situation in my patches when signal chain before filters is mono.
Just my thoughs.
