W25Q16DV Flash memory on the MKR Vicor 4000

There’s a W25Q16DV Windbond serial Flash Memory chip that’s used on the (MKR Vicor 4000) board that’s becoming obsolete and discontinued. (U3 - W25Q16DVSNIG). Is there a plan to replace this with something else and will it be function and/or pin compatible? Otherwise it will change all the past programming for it.

this has already been replaced in the newer batches with the JV version which is 100% compatible.
