Support for Windows 8 is expected, but not announced yet, we'll have to wait until Apple tell us.

Support for any version of Windows would be welcomed not just for Windows 8.
I would really like Apple at least to confirm that they are looking at the problem ...

It is supposed to be addressed in 10.8.3, but for whatever reason it't taking Apple an age to release it. Been Beta testing in various versions since December. Just wish they'd get on with it.

I have seen no announcement from Apple regarding Windows 8 and 10.8.3, can you post a link to where you got this information please.

He's obviously violating his or someone else's NDA so don't expect a response.
Obviously Windows can't boot from a proprietary and undocumented Apple logical volume management technology. So Windows can't actually use a fusion drive. But they can make it so the user can choose whether to put Windows on the SSD or the HDD.
Given how messy hybrid MBRs have been with single disk, non-Core Storage uses of Boot Camp, it wouldn't surprised me if Apple's finally seeing some of this more easily manifest with multiple disks, and Core Storage. In order for them to enable the installation of Windows on one of the drives used in a fusion drive, it's not exactly a cake walk because first the HFS file system needs to be shrunk, then the logical volume needs to be shrunk, and then any data in the area to become usable for Windows needs to be moved. Then there's a conventional partition created for that space, and then it's formatted.
