Side-channel attacks mitigations on SGX




To my knowledge threat model of SGX states that " they do not protect against side channel attack and have excluded such attacks in their threat model". I am aware that ForeShadow is one of the latest if not the latest practical attack performed over SGX. They have demonstrated this attack to Intel and Intel responsible guys have promised to defend against such attack in the new release version of SGX. 

Now my question is: Does anyone now the current state of SGX threat model? Does SGX now protect against side channel attack and in particular against ForeShadow attack? If yes, can anyone explain to me or forward me to some sources, the line of defense SGX authors have taken to protect against such attacks.
