When people here say MKV support what they really mean is support for the full contingent of Blu-ray Audio/Video formats. This doesn't even appear to support DVD
On the other hand, I would want to wait for something specific from Ceton before putting down money for this.
Yup, like I said, without some massive clarification, like "Woops, our marketing department sent that email, it really supports...." I'm out.

If Ceton made a statement such as "MKV Support coming soon" then I'd be a lot happier!
To be clear what Ceton said in the email is this:

So only the hardware is actually final. That said, their table of what's there and what's coming is quite disappointing, unless there's a lot more coming than that...
