Noticed that DC is releasing FLASH OF TWO WORLDS DELUXE EDITION HC this Wednesday.

"Flash of Two Worlds" - is any version of that still canon? Flash_45

(W) Gardner Fox, John Broome
(A) Joe Giella, Sid Greene
(CA) Murphy Anderson
(A/CA) Carmine Infantino
Learn how police scientist Barry Allen, the Flash of the 1960s, first crossed paths with Jay Garrick, the Flash of the 1940s, in this hardcover collecting The Flash #123, #129, #137, #151, #170 and #173. These are the stories that first established the science fiction concept of parallel universes in DC Comics, as the Fastest Man Alive learned to use his super-speed to travel across dimensions to Earth-2!

By the way, after the reintroduction of the JSA back into the DC Universe in recent issues of Justice League (and in Doomsday Clock), where does that leave the classic "Flash of Two Worlds" in terms of current-DC continuity? Not having read the issues of JL that included the JSA (still waiting to see whether I might get a tpb collection whenever it gets released in the future), was the JSA on the same Earth as the JL? Do they remember their 1941 encounter with the JL of the "future"? If the classic pre-CoIE story of the "first" meeting of Jay and Barry still no longer is possible, does the revised post-CoIE version from Secret Origins #50 in 1990 still possibly apply in current DC continuity (not just in "head-canon")?

I think it's hard to know unless DC explicitly says something. During Convergence they "undid" COIE, but then said those earths evolved into the modern ones. What does that mean? We need to see it in a story, otherwise it's just a guess.

Well, I'm assuming that the WWII-era JSA and the present-day JL were both from the same Earth, or was it revealed that they weren't?
Was anything mentioned as to whether the JSA and the JL will remember this meeting they just had in the future, or is this something that the JSA won't remember because of whatever happened in this story?
(Or did DC and Snyder/Tynion IV refuse to commit to anything in the story?)
