Well I am still waiting. It seems that there are few releases of Panasonic/Olympus products at the moment. Shops are open again (at the moment). The Olympics is due to go ahead this month. Rather than buy a P20mm, I shall just use my PL15mm. The Laowa 7.5mm is crossed off my list and I shall use my P7-14mm. 75mm prime, I am not paying £100 premium for a black Olympus model, so waiting for this fabled, long awaited O100mm.
German rep said recently in very cryptic way that OMDS made a promise of at least 1 new body and 2 new lenses a year. The 150-400mm supertele zoom was a delayed release from 2020. Which makes the 8-25mm F4 the first lens of 2021. So... the 100mm macro is going to be announced "later this year", very likely during OM-D event.

I note that the Development Announcements on getolympus.com says a tele-macro is coming, but not when it’s coming!

“Two new lenses, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm F4.0 PRO lens, as well as an unspecified macro lens, will join the M.Zuiko lineup as part of Olympus’ commitment to broaden the field of photographic expression.”

What a great name. I’m tempted to change mine to Zachary Quack or Hairy Maclairy now. Love those books!
My kids loved that book when they were young. I can probably still recite it from heart. “Slinky Malinki was blacker than black, …”

My username is also taken from a book, David Copperfield. It's the nickname that the title character's first wife, Dora, uses for him.

OP was asking for a "hint", not for knowledge, and Slinky pointed to a hint directly from Olympus that not only is the 100mm macro coming, it is probably next now that the 8-25mm F4 has been released. Slinky gave the OP exactly what he wanted. Learn to read, and maybe it won't seem so pointless.
