Pause for Approval in 2.0

When can we expect availability of Pause/Resume states in 2.0? Pausing and waiting for approval is a must have feature for us to upgrade to 2.0. Will this work in a similar fashion to 1.0?

We use raise PAUSE() inside a task run if a criteria isn’t met (i.e. a batch on an outside service isn’t ready for processing) and then use the python client (from outside of prefect) to put the task into a Resume state when criteria is met. We don’t use ‘manual_only’ task definitions.
