Correct. However, if one committed an important feature as a minor update for PL2, then one should deliver. At least before PL3. You create expectations.
Anyhow, being able to export RAW to HEIF is very important in my opinion. Should it not be released before PL4, then I might walk away from this piece of software. Especially, if competitors do offer it.
JPEG is too old fashioned (8bit etc) and TIFF is too large.
