Does GX Typhoon MCE work with XMBC?

Really considering getting one of these (tricolor) version and wanted to know if it would work with XMBC?
if so what kind of information can it display?

The program that sends information to the GX, LCDStudio, can run at the same time as XBMC, but it cannot pull information from XBMC.
So, you could display information such as computer temperatures or processor loads, but unfortunately, not the name of the file your playing.

do you have any future plans to have GX MCE working with XMBC? as this would be very popular with the large XMBC community.

With so many different media player/HTPC programs available I don't think you'll see many plug-ins beyond the standard Windows Media Centre functionality currently available.
will have more info on the program itself and how plug-ins are created; perhaps an enthusiastic member of the XBMC community would be willing to write the necessary code.
