I think a reunion with the complete original band will occur.  Whether it will amount to more than just a tour, I don't know.  It probably depends a bit on whether they can get along long enough to get an album made.

As for anything they've done recently; I don't care for Oceania.  I liked some of the TBK songs and was a bit sad that got abandoned.  Admittedly, the concept was gimmicky, but I liked where he was going with the music vs. Oceania.  But Oceania is better than everything else since the original band broke up.

At this point, it seems almost quaint that I did get to see the original line-up when they toured Mellon Collie.  Pre-Jimmy Chamberlain being kicked out, pre-D'arcy doing whatever she's been doing.  Crack?  I dunno.

Sort of like the one time I saw Depeche Mode with all four "classic-era" members, before Alan Wilder left.

Been listening to a lot of Gish and Siamese Dream this week.  I made some playlists that include just about all of the material from those eras. 
Here is Siamese Dream as a double album (bonus list makes it a quad album).  I'm still working out the proper song order for the Gish one.  I consider Drown to belong with Gish but included on both playlists since it came out in between the two albums.  Take a listen and let me know what you think of this order or have a suggested order.  I think the bonus could be improved but was more focused on the tracklist of the main songs.

1.   Soothe
2.   Cherub Rock
3.   Quiet
4.   Hello Kitty Kat
5.   Today
6.   Blew Away
7.   Hummer
8.   Whir
9.   Rocket
10.   Frail and Bedazzled
11.   Disarm
12.   Sinfony
13.   Soma
14.   French Movie Theme

15.   Siamese Dream
16.   Pissant
17.   Geek USA
18.   Mayonaise
19.   Apathy’s Last Kiss
20.   Spaceboy
21.   Silverf*&^
22.   Bugg Superstar
23.   Sweet Sweet
24.   Glynis
25.   Luna
26.   Spaced
27.   Drown
28.   Infinite Sadness (outtake ’93)

Bonus material:
1.   Mayonaise (acoustic)
2.   Landslide
3.   Dancing In The Moonlight
4.   Never Let Me Down Again (bbc session)
5.   Frail and Bedazzled BC Instrumental
6.   Suicide Kiss Geek No Vox
7.   Barb Wire
8.   Pissant (rough mix)
9.   Siamese Dream (broadway rehearsal demo)
10.   STP (rehearsal demo)
11.   Frail and Bedazzled (soundworks demo)
12.   Luna (apartment demo)
13.   Quiet (BBC session – bc mix)
14.   Moleasskiss (soundworks demo)
15.   Hello Kitty Kat (soundworks demo)
16.   Today (broadway rehearsal demo)
17.   Apathy’s Last Kiss (Siamese sessions roughmix)
18.   Ache (silverf rehearsal demo)
19.   USA (soundworks demo
20.   USSR (soundworks demo)
21.   Spaceboy (acoustic mix)
22.   Rocket (rehearsal demo)
23.   Disarm (acoustic mix)
24.   Soma (instrumental mix)
25.   Glynis (2012 mix)
26.   Quiet (Live in Atlanta)
27.   Cherub Rock (acoustic)

Just listened to geek USA. First time in a long time. The non singles on that album very underrated. And I love the EMG tone

Cherub Rock is a work of pure genius! It gets me leaping around the room like an idiot! I also really like Ava Adore and Today. Good band.
