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.
