How do I find that out? Isn't it the rev number there? Or do I need to 
run a command to find that out? I can't physically look at the device as 
its built into the laptop board.

Ok, I get that people are busy working on other (possibly) more 
important things, but what is required to get the advanced features 
working? Where can I find out the current status of these projects and 
how to help?

I'm currently learning about this technology (I know, late bloomer and 
all... :) ) and its various features- which are why I'm looking 
carefully at it now for my current needs. Unfortunately its the advanced 
features which I really need :( So if I can help advance things I will.
