Assess SQL Server 2019 and Windows Server 2019 for Cognos Analytics compatability

I have looked at all applicable software compatibility reports and the like and can see that Microsoft SQL Server 2019 is not yet supported as a content store or data source (for 11.1.1 and 11.1.4)...and that Microsoft Windows Server 2019 is not yet supported as an operating system (for 11.1.1 and 11.1.4). I need to know if and where they each are in the compatibility assessment pipeline for each of those CA versions. We are receiving pressure to move to Windows Server 2019 for our Cognos application servers....and to SQL Server 2019 for our content store and need to be able to speak to when these may or may not be supported for 11.1.1 and 11.1.4.
