>the super sharp WebmasterWorld crowd has spotted that long before the official release
Ah, I see it was reported some 2 weeks ago. However, I have an excuse owing to the time of the year.
You see, on Dec.1st I always set my calendar back 2 weeks so I'll have plenty of time to do my X-mas shopping. People may get their gifts 2 weeks late but I save a hell of a lot of money buying them in January.
That puts me out of phase 2 weeks and it takes me the rest of the year to catch back up.
