I am not working with Benoni so much myself but  http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?num=1420911117  could be a source to look into which is recently updated.
  

What kind of proof is that?

What's the theoretical state of Fianchetto Benoni?

Hi,

What is the theoretical state of the Benoni Defense Fianchetto Variation?

How big is White’s advantage in the Fianchetto Benoni?
Is it bigger, as big or smaller than White’s usual first move advantage against good Black openings like QGD, QGA, Slav, Semi-Slav, KID, Grünfeld?
Is it bigger, as big or smaller than White’s advantage in the Symmetrical English?
Is it bigger, as big or smaller than White’s advantage in the Reversed Sicilian?
(If I'm not mistaken: White's advantage in the Symmetrical English is less than White's advantage in the "QGD, QGA, Slav, Semi-Slav, KID, Grünfeld". And White's advantage in the Reversed Sicilian is less than White's advantage in the Symmetrical English.)

Avrukh recently wrote a good book on the Fianchetto Benoni, he seems to believe that White gets to keep his usual first move advantage.
But what do other titled players think about the Fianchetto Benoni?
Before Avrukh published his book, most people seemed to agree that Black gets instant equality in the Fianchetto Benoni... But what about today?
Is the Fianchetto Benoni just a passing fad?
