Any official Pentax tethering support rumors?

Hi, are there any rumors on tethering support for the Pentax K-5 or any old or future Pentax dslr. I havenít heard anything new about tethering for a long time. Should we completely discard our hopes for tethering support or Ö

It is supported, it's just that there hasn't been an official Pentax program for it since the K20D.

Moved to the general dslr section

Thanks for moving the post to more appropriate subforum and sorry for multiple posts on same subject. I wasn't aware that a new version of PK_Tether was released. Should check other subforums.

I should also be more specific in the first place. Tomazsís PK_Tether is a great achievement, but I was wondering if Pentax will prepare something official. For instance, liveview over the full laptop lcd would be great, but it is probably something that only a new firmware could support. And this is only reasonable if Pentax itself releases tethering program. Until then PK_Tether is the program I will be enjoying to use.

They said there will come a tethering program for the 645D but we are still waiting after a year...
It could be that that program will also support the K5, but no garantuee.
