I would rather they painfully string us along past their projected deadline rather than shoe-horn in something for release before 2010. Unless it is all shined up and ready to roll of course and then full speed ahead! It's just that there's enough cautious anticipation and outright hatred surround v3 already that anything less than 100% fully formed thoughts and rules will cause the internet to quite literally explode and fry every gamer's brain from the inside out. They've tended to "met gords wixed up" in previous publications and it could really bite them in the backside on this game. It'd be grand if on release day the FFG crew didn't have to release a 'bear with us as we tune in the game' announcement.
Of course whenever their release date is there will be a lone halfling standing on an overlook with a single cholesterol riddled tear oozing down his jowls...

when for the V3 ?
Someone at Gencon said that they were told by FFG that the expectation is "in time for Christmas". As such, I expect that it will be late November or December (which isn't really Fall, but hey).
