The K20D's discontinuation as a current model is probably going to be announced any day now....
The usual practice with most manufacturers is that whatever remains of the development team is reassigned, and the model is fully handed over to Field Service until the warranty runs out. Very unlikely to be any more firmware updates....

The K7 is already a great camera, all it needs are minor tweaks..like tethering!
I wonder how they could have missed tethering!
What is "tethering"?

Using laptop to activate shutter on the camera

The more important aspect of "tethering" is that the images are transferred to the laptop/computer immediately.

This helps to evaluate the images and hence tells you when you can stop shooting.

I know that landscape and studio photographers use tethered shooting, but there are probably many more applications.

Pentax Remote Assistant is a useful tool in this context.
