Regardless of when it comes out, whats more important is what will it have?
"With time comes virtue"
I don't want a new version every week with minor bug fixes and insignificant add-ons. It would be nice to have newer safedisc 2.8+ written correctly (maybe even the pre-gap like DiscJuggler does). Also if legal reasons permit, it would nice for an auto launch sequence of a twinpeak/image for securom to occur instead of taking all the steps manually. I am sure many things are in demand, and I don't mind waiting so long as its worthwhile a wait.
