Perhaps it makes sense to stop waiting and hope for something, be more skeptical and visit such forums less often. Just use what is already available and keep practicing.
The digital piano market is rather mature. Combined with the current global chaos, I speculate the makers are having a tough time with basic operations, never-mind innovation. That said, in the last couple of years, we saw a lot of action in the hybrid space (two Kawai Novus pianos and the Yamaha NU1x, n1x); in the slab space, Yamaha released the 515 and Roland the FP90.
The virtual Instrument market is less mature, somewhat more of the "wild west". Partly a function of declining prices of computer storage and the relative ease of making and selling software from one's basement. The PianoWorld VI database indicates over 200 piano VIs were introduced in the past decade by dozens of firms. Today, everyone can make a VI with lots of layers and long 48khz/16bit samples, so I suppose the focus goes back to "fundamentals" (piano, tuning, room, sampling, scripting...) and / or "features". On the upside, some firms have a lot of experience sampling pianos, and in the last year we saw some exciting pianos from VSL, VI Labs, NI, etc.
So, I'm not sure digital pianos and VIs will innovate quite as rapidly as they did in the past decade, there is some exciting progress to come.
