Where has kanplan gone from labs

I'm really keen to give Kanplan a go with one of my teams as I think they would really benefit from this tool - however appears to have been removed from Labs.  Does anyone know why or if its likely to make a return?

Hi Claire,

Good news: it's no longer a labs feature, but available in product. To enable it for your board, go to your board configuration, then to the columns tab and assign a status (backlog, most likely) to the Backlog column:
