Yes it is planned for next update. We have not changed the Reticule View of the gunner position, only the Nestled View because that was the one with the big problem and I found out the one most users prefered. We still model the weight and inertia of moving the gun around and you can still glance over your shoulder with TrackIR, but it remains a bit sluggish as before. 90% of users don't care about that anyways in Nestled View. Just use your mouse and you should have no problem picking up and tracking targets in Nestled View.
There are still ways I think we can improve all gunner mechanics, but it requires a huge re-write and re-design that we don't have the time or resources for at the moment. Maybe someday, but now you can be a gunner and be effective without the gun locking up and doing odd things.
Let me also say that this is still in beta and anything can happen in testing.
