That's really a question/comment that should be directed at X-Rite.

The i1p2 is backwards compatible, and so will work with the current
release of ArgyllCMS, while the next release will directly support
some of the new i1p2 features (Wavelength calibration, stray light
reduction and black level tracking). I'm not sure just yet when
the next release will be available though (I am waiting for
an update to the ColorHug firmware.)
