Any chance an MV SDK for 8x96 with support for Arm 64-bit (that is, aarch64 libs) is coming soon?  Timeframe?

Thanks!

aarch64 versions for 8x96 are not currently planned.  Why would you need it?

...to link a 64-bit application against 64-bit MV libs.  Right now MV libs are 32-bit... so SDK users are restricted to compiling/linking our apps as 32-bit, even though the CPU (Snapdragon 820) and OS (OE Linux / yocto) are 64-bit.  (Am I thinking about this in the wrong way...???).  Thanks.
