Any hint about a release date yet Thunderfall? :yeah:

If you notice, he says "So, want to be teased a few more days...?"; also Brad said he was just about to release the Mac-specific patch when they got wind of 1.17f, so they are probably just taking a few days to port the 1.17 patch to the mac. I suspect release is imminent.
I agree with SSK - personally, I would guess that, barring any unexpected problems, we're likely to see it sometime this week.
