On January 18, 2019, The MIDI Manufacturers Association (MMA) and Association of Music Electronics Industry (the Japanese MIDI association AMEI) have announced an upgrade to the 40-year old MIDI protocol... MIDI 4.0!
Key takeaways... Backwards compatible and tighter timing.

What were they doing for about 40 years? It is overdue!
First, they have to get Vince Clarke's approval.
(He never uses MIDI, and I heard that he REMOVES MIDI ports from his synth!)

He does use MIDI, he talks about it in this studio tour video

I'll check the clip later. I remember I read his interview long time ago, saying that he hates MIDI for timing issue. I did state that he goes far to remove MIDI ports from his gear.
So... If new MIDI can get his approval, that'll be a great endosement.
