Any plans for 5GHz wifi?

Does Onion have any plans to include a 5GHz wifi in upcoming Omegas? I'm sure there are some technical challenges but I just need to know.

Thank guys I took a look at the note and ordered a few different units to test.
My preference is really to have 5GHz built into the the Pro or a version of the Pro. Purely from a mechanical point of view, my IoT device exposed the mini-usb port on my case so users can power the device, this would mean I have to also expose the USB-A port with the 5GHz dongle which looks pretty messy and I know users will unplug it or fiddle with it and then complain they have no network connectivity. Alternatively I would need to redesign my case to move the Omega away from the side of my case and use a short mini-usb case mounted port. Either way it's messy.
When using the Omega Pro, it is possible to get both the internal 2.4 GHz wifi radio and a USB 5GHz wifi dongle activated at the same time?
I would like to use my Omega Pro as a router offering both 2.4GHz and 5GHz access points.
So far, I've only been able to activate one or the other, but not both at the same time.
And yes, I know about the Onion Application Note on a 5GHz WiFi solution.
Any help would be welcomed.
No more help is needed.
A clean and complete recompilation of the latest version from the git repo did the trick.
