This year has been packed, so the final testing and implementation has been delayed. But the plumbing is in place for VDSes at most locations.

Will V4 addresses still be an option? And will not having V6 addresses still be an option?

Naleksuh, the way that it is currently set up is that IPv6 is enabled on a per-VDS basis. I am not certain yet how that option will be exposed. An IPv4 IP address will also still be assigned to every service by default, and I expect that will continue to be the case for quite some time. Only specialized private setups right now can really be IPv6-only (one example might be a VDS that is used for backups).

Still in progress. 2020 was an eventful year from an operational standpoint.

It's frustrating, because 95% of the real work is done. I really want to push it out the door. But that last 5%, and testing, are important.

Will they be treated by /64 ranges in a manner similar to v4s, or individual v6 addresses (less ideal)
