I too have been waiting, wanting to upgrade my existing controller.  Steve said he was working on the written instructions for the controller. Makes perfect sense to me.

Does anyone have pricing on the upgrade controller yet?

Nothing yet.  Just have to wait till Steve updates the site.

We're trying to finalize the instructions, and Steve is at the National Restaurant Assoc show this weekend, so they are shooting for May 28th to get them on the site!

Will the upgrade controller work with my SI that came with an analog controller to begin with?

I do not know if Steve is going to offer an upgrade kit for the analog controlled smokers. He will, in time, offer the upgraded controller for the D models since it will be largely unplug the old and plug in the new.   Tony (DivotMaker) likely has more info on this than I do since he gets to field test and help in development.

Been awhile since I been on, hello again.  Saw this on Facebook.  Looks very similar to a Heatermeter, looks like they built their own board to replace the pi/home brew setup though.

Cool upgrade

An idea you might want to work on is IFTTT or an Alexa skill.  It’s fun to get Alexa to tell you what your probe temps/pit temp are and be able to get her to adjust the temp on command.  Homebridge is a good way to get into HomeKit for Siri control without having to do all the work to get HomeKit approval.
