Any new trends in military firearms lubricants for small arms ?   Small Arms <20mm

I seem to recall reading accounts of US Army efforts to develop integral dry lubricants (reportedly as an alternative to more traditional lubricants.)  I would be curious to know if such lubricants have been fielded and if there are any other similar developments or trends ?

Thanks in advance

Not a big fan of lubricants in firearms but, definitely a fan of ever-better PVD coatings for use in firearms.

I will soon be shipping the bolt and bolting insert for my new rifles to Oerlikon Balzers for a BALIQ CARBOS STAR PVD treatment.
