GroupWise 2014 Feature Question

It is my understanding that a feature of the up coming GroupWise release is the ability to place pictures on the eDirectory/GroupWise admin side of a contact list and have it flow down to the end users. I am hoping that this is the case but wanted to ask if this is the case and then a few follow up questions.

If true, then:
1. Is this just part of GroupWise 2014 and not a sync from eDirectory?
2. Is it possible to reference the same data for other products, ie Filr?
3. If it is part of eDirectory is it possible to start the process of placing the staff pictures on eDir objects to get things primed? Would love to have this populate upon deploying the new version and then have ZMM and Filr also do so for the staff.
