What are the chances that Ultimaker (or a 3rd party) will release an upgraded control board for the 2+ that hasWiFi/Ethernet and the same "Cura Connect" type firmware that the Ultimaker 3 has? 

 

I have both the 2+ and the 3, and like the ability to connect to the printer from a web browser to check on the prints.

    It's most likely not going to happen. The reason is the fact that the Ultimaker 3 actually has two boards, one being the Olimex board with all the connectivity stuff like WiFi etc. on it and the other one called motion controller being an upgraded version of the UM2+ mainboard. While the Olimex board is run by a Linux image the motion controller board is driven by an older Marlin version.

    But you might want to check Octoprint for your UM2+.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
