Form Recognizer Sample Tool and API 3.0

Hi. We are going to launch new project based on Form Recognizer API provided by Azure Platform with our custom trained model.
At this moment we are using API in version 2.1 and Form Recognizer Sample Tool as the tool for labeling and building training model set. As we can see API 3.0 is on the way and the question is: are you going to add API 3.0 support in Form Recognizer Sample Tool or we should start thinking about switching to Form Recognizer Studio in the future?

@az-0030 The recommendation for customers using the labeling tool (FOTT) is to migrate to the new Studio to use the latest release.
All 2.x models work also with the new API and it is backward compatible. If you would like to train, update models or use the new features such as signature detection, new languages etc. you can open the project in the new studio by connecting to the blob folder. All previous labeled fields should exist.

@romungi-MSFT Thank you for your answer. Is there any roadmap for next releases of Form Recognizer Studio? At this moment it lacks some features from FOTT, for example I can't see any option to share one project between different users (it is easy to do in FOTT), of course we can set up different projects in Studio for different user accounts while sharing same folder on blob container to achive similar result, but it becomes little bit painful if you have lot of projects and lot of users to work on it.

@az-0030 Yes, I agree the collaboration feature is yet to be migrated to the studio. Since the studio is still in preview the team is actively working on feedback and features to update it regularly. The roadmap or updates are shared on Azure updates page here. You can also provide this feedback from the tool using the smiley icon on the top right corner or using this link.

I may be mistaken but I only see announcements there.
Is there a roadmap for future releases so we can also plan accordingly?
