Is there any word on a sequel to Vernor Vinge's Children of the Sky (the 3rd in the Zones of Thought books)?

It seems to be ends as if there will be another book, but a cursory Internet search has not given me any answers.

If there is any information about possible sequel at this point I would love to know?

I just did a quick scan and didn't see any commitments to schedule, but I did find a statement of (possible) intent from 2013:

Do you have any plans for Zones novels after “The Children in the Sky”?

VV: I have an events trajectory that probably needs two or three more novels to complete.


For a better answer, I suggest websearching for more recent interviews... or catch up with him at an SF convention; he's a very approachable guy, in my experience.
