The last thing I saw on the AZO forum about Lodima was the following message from Michael Smith, from about a month ago.

We have discussed this with the manufacturer and have been assured that all adjustments would be made. At this pont we areconfident that we will have paper. But we do not yet have a delivery date."
My understanding is that the the emulsion is now aging and the paper will be released when it satisfies Michael's requirements for contrast.
