Nothing has been announced publicly. Legally Acube don't have to. You have to assume no.

Not true. Dennis van Weeren said that MiniMig is based almost entirely on the information contained within the 3rd Edition of the Amiga Hardware Reference manual. However he admits the manual contains one or two very small gaps (undocumented features) which he filled in with information gleemed from UAE.

Again not true (at least with current MiniMig core). The VGA monitors HAVE to sync to 50Hz vertical refresh. That rules out a lot of LCD monitors.

And better, they have AGA, RTG, CPU accelerators, hard disk support, optical disc (CD32/CDTV) support. More than 1.5Mbytes of RAM etc.
