To quote @Tomer_Noy from this thread:
3) We had some delays with the updatable SmartConsole development (mainly due to other high priorities that came in), so we are behind schedule for sharing it with the field during 2019. However, we are not waiting for the release of R80.50. The plan is to release another flavor of SmartConsole that will be auto-updatable during Q1. We will release it to versions that are already GA (such as R80.40 and R80.30). The new package will be available in parallel to the existing one, and customer will be able to choose the new flavor early if they wish.
Not sure if it is planned for the R80.10 SmartConsole, but I guess Tomer can answer this. 🙂
