I personally dig through the devel files to see what the devs are up to.
TAZ 7 and Lulzbot Mini 2 seems to both be using the new E3D Aero extruder. This tells me that AO hexagon hotend may be getting phased out.
One of the biggest change I noticed is Z axis is belt driven and there are now two vertical smooth rods per side. I personally dont know how this will affect print quality, speed or reliability. On one hand, the mini 1.04 gladiola now is a proven design that works. On the other land lulzbot may be onto to something great with this redesign. Still an unecessary risk IMO.
The chassis for mini 2 looks exactly the same so an LCD isnt currently integrated. In fact, under the mini accessories folder there’s a new 3D printed LCD addon the hangs on the the front top left of the printer. You can probably make your own if you have a soldering iron and some headers.
There are some major redesign for the new generation of lulzbot printer. OP if I were you I would wait and see the reviews. If the mini 2 v 1.0 has a lot of problems that wont be addressed until v 1.1, you can probably get a good deal on a mini gladiola. Unless you absolutely need a printer now, Id say just hold out.
