We are aware of the importance of this feature and are working on it. I don’t have an ETA to share at this point but will update you once we are closer to preview.

I'm with everyone else on this, how in the world do we have a 16 char max and no spaces? Regular AD has allowed both for years because it is more secure. Did they just copy the Azure password system from some really old code? Get with the program MSFT, how long can it possibly take to increase the max to something reasonable, like maybe 64, and allow spaces? I still can't believe this actually went public in its current state.
