Is there a place where we can make pledges? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pledge_drive

For example, I can commit to donating $20 every time a new version is released. Is there a place where we can all show the designer that we want to support this amazing Magnum Opus of his, by listing pledges or other declarations of support?

What is the probable time-frame for the next release? Less than a year away I take it? Perhaps a few months?

A few months, yes.
Perhaps June, or July.

Not officially.

Most of the time people just make an official sounding thread in this here General Discussion forum when it smells like a release is in the air, and from there people usually reply with their pledges.

There is a traditional pledge drive near each new release, and also for some special occasions (like Christmas).  But it's unofficial.  Despite being unofficial, they're nice because some people do donation-matching plans, like "I'll donate $10 + 10% of the total".

That feels optimistic to me.  My neutral guess would be August/September, and my pessimistic guess would be sometime before the end of the year.  There are still quite a few features that haven't been worked on at all yet.  Also, there is likely to be quite a bit of debugging once all of the intended features are more or less finished.  As a software developer myself, I'm always paranoid about the duration of debugging.  And even then I usually end up being not paranoid enough.

As a professional software tester, I can tell you that debuging never ends.

The new version will rock. I was a bit disappointed about the last one, since I expected the whole army arc to be implemented back then. Silly me. :P

Yeah. Even tho I was wrong 2 times already, so I better won't start to speculate again about the release date of the next version.  ;D

The release date will be somewhere between the day before and the day after it's done.

Tell me I'm wrong.

You're wrong.   ;)

...

DF will never be done, so it seems inappropriate to say that any release of DF will be "done".  The release will therefore come out long before it is actually done (assuming the release comes out at all *knock on wood*).
