Are 'they' coming out with new (colored?) updated Convention Charts to replace the old GCC ?.....Also, looking to see if a multi-2NT bid will be allowed or does an opening of 2NT remain as strictly either a natural bid or a hand containing both Minors ? Thank you

2N can be used to show 2 Known suits in Open (which is similar to mid-chart)
Not sure what Multi for 2N is/
For open+ (which is like super chart)In​ ​segments​ ​of​ ​fewer​ ​than​ ​6​ ​boards,​ ​an​ ​Artificial​ ​opening​ ​Preempt​ ​below​ ​3NT​ ​that​ ​does not​ ​show​ ​at​ ​least​ ​one​ ​known​ ​suit.. You could have something multi for 2N but is only at teams really and there are other restriction you would have to read in the link I gave

The convention charts have never (or not recently) actually been in "chart" format, they've just been a page of textual lists. They'd more accurately be called convention regulations.

There's an Alert Chart, but it's just considered a concise summary of the Alert Procedures.

The new "charts" are an agenda item for the fall BoD meeting, with a proposed implementation date of 1 March 2018.

Looks like the Board of Govenors kicked the can down the road until Phlly

Pretty ridiculous from my perspective given how long the materials have been available and how open the process has been.

I think you mean the BoD kicked it to Philly. It was item 173-20 on the BoD agenda for SD.
