any update on when ConfigMgr R3 will be released?

still expected in second half of this year, so sometime between now and 12/31/2010.  having said that, there are some rumors it may come out sooner (aug-sep-oct) rather than later (nov-dec).  I'll update once I have info I can share with the public.  I have spent alot of time with the R3 beta and RC and I'm excited about this release.
