Debugging pre-release won't take more than one month. He will try just to make the game stable, he won't fix each bug.

Yeah, true. I am basing it on 0.31.01, which may not be a good idea, since that update's changes were inherently more unstable (in a Big Fiery Ball Visible From Space way as opposed to a "oh no everyone but your fort died" way).

2014 - if we're lucky!
I remember the last time, when I tried to predict the release date of the next major version, I missed it by a year almost.. :D
...and just for the lulz..let's guess about the release date of the next major DF version, which will come after this one. [Even tho, who knows what Toady plans to add for that, but as we all know, he will focus on bugfixing for months anyway..], so I predict 2017 for that. Sounds awful, isn't it?  :o

*edit*

I stopped to follow the devpage for ages [Nowadays I only check it to see if there's a release or not..], so...
Is there a full list about the new features [major and minor] of the upcoming major update? Could anyone give me a link?

April Fool's Day.

Even if Toady doesn't release it Apr 1 there will be all sorts of rumors that he has.

Too much bugfixing to do for an April Fool's Day release date.

May Day's much more likely, I think. I suspect he'll slip under the two-year anniversary of the last release, but not by much.

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

Toady said March, so tomorrow or a year from now.

6th of July, 2023, very early in the morning.

The entire content consists of senseless murder, a pile of faceless naked women and zero regard for human life in general, all in the service of the protagonist's base impulses. It is clearly a cry for help from a neglected, self absorbed and disempowered juvenile badly in need of affectionate guidance. What a sad, sad display.

The period between mid-April to mid-May (this year!) seems like a reasonable release date window.
