There is not public timeline. We can only hope that after they officially announce the product they will change that and start actually communicating with us better, but for now we're stuck.
(They have said the next SDK will be fairly soon, but then you have to look at what they did for earlier releases, where it was promised mid-December, but took a month longer to get out. We'll get it when we get it, is the best way to think.)

The best that we can hope for are detailed release notes. Things can change pretty dynamically up to the release date. If they are trying to hold a release date, a feature might have to be backed out because it has not been completly tested or there was a show stopper dug. If the pre-announced that a certain feature would be available and it got pulled just before release, then they would get he!! for it.
Asking/hoping for detailed release notes is a resonable expectation.
We're all going to download the SDK and re-compile anyway.

BB is well known to be tight lip. Yes, *they* know. Think of it as a chess game. You dont want to show your strategy too early. Dont you think there are Apple spys on this list. Only partners with signed NDA's have this kind of knowledge. We will know when the public knows.
