You have already asked about 4 months ago and the answer is the same.
It will be ready when it's ready, and announced right after that.
The only difference is you now have 4 months less to wait.

Until then, you can easily check to detect changes.
FYI, using Last-modified from the HTTP headers is *not* reliable on because one of the nodes sends the timestamp of its cache entry
or the current time. Other nodes send the latest timestamp of all files used
to do the XSL transform.
The one from would be reliable but the XHTML is very different.
