 From the perspective of an interested observer who has observed the 
development cycle for a while now, I'm guessing mid-year, give or take a 
couple of months.
It would do some good if you are using 1.3.5svn to have something newer 
than 6 November, since a number of things have been fixed since then 
(plus some add-ons that are not fully or are hardly functional at all yet).

This 1.3.5 has been a big jump, what with Qt4, new text system, and 
various other large improvements.
