They have a pre-order listing for it.
The pre-order listing for the Pentax version is just the Mk I version.
There is no Mk II version for Pentax yet.
Hopefully it will be just a matter of time until it becomes available. I'd prefer it over the original Mk I design.

The changes between the Mk I and Mk II are mostly gracenote fixes, but the sheer number of them pretty much means the Mk II is going to have a better, more refined UI.
The Mk II has a completely different button layout and a lot of the interaction is different.

To me, the one feature that the Pro trigger still would need to make that TCM button really useful is TTL group ratio settings,
I don't find group ratios useful.

You can achieve the same effect with the current approach -- if one group has double the power than another, these groups are in a 2:1 ratio -- without changing the paradigm. The standard paradigm has the advantage of allowing simple and fine-grained tweaks to individual groups on top of achieving certain ratios via the respective strength choices.

I have just received my Xpro-p and immediately had to try it on my K1. What a revelation, it plays nicely with all of my studio flashes, my ad200, TT600's and V850II's without any misfires or bugs in more than 800 shots. I have always shot flash in manual so I can balance the background ambient light , so to be able to do this and be able to exceed sync speed on the fly without changing any settings and have my flashes seamlessly change to HSS is amazing.
I'm so impressed that my Cactus gear (V6's,V6II's and flashes) and Pentax AF-540's will be going on the market.

Yeah, it really simplifies things. Its great timing for Pentax as with the evolution of Godox triggers it means that although we've had to wait a long time we've ended up getting the best Godox trigger so far.

You could find the pre-order for canon and nikon at these adres

https://www.adorama.com/fprrr2procii.html?

https://www.adorama.com/fprrr2pronii.html?

In the FAQ, there is noted that money will only be taken when the triggers will become available and sent

Somebody has also asked if the mark II version will be compatible with GODOX or only with FLASHPOINT flashes ....
Confirmation that they will be usable with GODOX has been done

On FLASHAVOC, we can also hear that,soon, there will be a vertical shoe available ... so you can see the screen of the trigger when you put your camera high on a tripod

More good news, Godox has released new firmware updates for some more strobes, AD600 strobes, AD400 and now AD200 strobes are now compatible with Pentax X TTL.
I had to try out yesterdays firmware release on my AD200 even though I have always shot manual, but this firmware is a revelation, none of the old TTL inconsistencies and then if you're like me just use the TCM function and convert TTL to manual
settings and adjust to your liking from there with the added bonus of no pre-flash. It gives great baseline exposures, my flash meters aren't going to like this. One more bonus is Godox's Pentax X TTL does work well with manual focus lenses
unlike Cactus triggers.( I've been using Voigtlanders with A contacts, I'll have to test more.)

Wow great news! Recieved trigger 2 days back and was really disappointed as TTL was not working with my AD200...

One more addition: the non-Pentax V860II have also received a P-TTL compatibility firmware update.

So, only the AD360II and TT685 to go. (The TT350/V350 mini speedlight, and X1R receivers don't do cross-brand TTL).

If you haven't done a Godox firmware update before, you need a micro USB cable, the appropriate firmware update application, and a Windows box to run it. There are two update apps: G1 for all the pre-AD200 lights, and G2 for the AD200 and later lights. So, the AD200 and AD600 Pro requires G2, and the V860II, AD600, and AD600M require the G1 software. You can download the G1 and G2 installers from the same website that has the firmware files.

If you are on a Mac, a virtual Windows machine or Bootcamp Windows installation will work. If you want to do this for free, you could try using VirtualBox and a free developer's 90-day Windows VirtualBox virtual machine from Microsoft, but I never had great luck doing that.

You can also use the Adorama Flashpoint firmware website and use their F1/F2 apps and firmware download files, but they sometimes exceed their Dropbox download limits, and often don't have the files as quickly as the Godox site.

On the AD200, make sure you use the micro USB port near the power switch for the update; not the USB-A port that's for plugging in an FTR16 receiver if you want to use the old 433MHz Godox system. If it doesn't work, a lot of folks have found that switching micro USB cables can get things going; some micro USB cable cannot transfer data but are only for charging devices. If there are Chinese characters in path names, deleting them will fix any issues with using those files on a non-Chinese system.

Thanks for the updates. This is great news. I'm pretty sure I have this right, but want to confirm:
1) AD200, AD400, AD600 models that support TTL at all will support PTTL with a firmware update that is available now.
2) For speedlights, there is no Pentax specific model, but the other branded ones that support TTL will support PTTL with a firmware update available now.
3) There has been no announcement that a Pentax specific speedlight is coming out?
4) All of the Godox flashes that support HSS will do HSS with the XPro-P transmitter without any firmware update
