VTP version 3 and MST

We are implementing MST on our new network. The problem right now is the fact that the MST config on every switch must be set up manually and be identical. When new VLAN's are added, the MST config must be updated on each switch.

I understand that VTP version 3 supports replication of the MST database like VTP already does for the VLAN database.

Do we have an ETA as to when this will be available or does anyone know a work-a-round?

I can see that the lack of the MST database replication would prevent large organizations from using this technology. And in my opinion, it's much cleaner than PVST.

Re: VTP version 3 and MST

The 3550 does not support VTP version 3, which essentially allows advertising extended range vlans. Version 3 is available on CatOS and cat6000 IOS. This is a platform limitation. Since the propagation is not possible, we have to resort to vtp transparent mode.
