They managed to release a proper stable version of eigen2. Don't underestimate the achievement of proper releases. (MTL4 keeps promising a proper release, but it isn't there yet.) Eigen3 will be a long time in the future, and will be quite different from eigen2. So in case eigen2 does what you want, just use it. They certainly have enough momentum for that. In case eigen2 doesn't yet do what you want, even the momentum of eigen won't help you much.
