I predict the new version will come out within the first few days of February. Possibly 1/2/12.

Groundhog Day, eh?  If it doesn't come out, will we have to wait six more weeks? ;)

Groundhog's Day is Feb 2.

Which is 2/2/12, but americans go by the weird MM/DD/YYYY system.

i believe that comes from say... January 1st 2012. aka MM/DD/YYYY.
however, much to the annoyance looking over anything i wrote in the past, i alternate between the two popular systems sometimes.

No, but he'll re-release the same version thousands of times.

Generally, a body part can be assigned any number of extra items in the creature definition to drop upon being butchered.

And suddenly, we can have Genesis Balrogs dropping their actual weapons when their arms get butchered.

Among other things. ;D

Yeah, that should be interesting. I bet this'll come in handy when he gets around to the "swords for arms" constructed night creatures, too.

Various animals root around in the dirt and eat bugs for your viewing pleasure.

The fact that this was specifically noted, along with it being just bugs and not vermin in general, makes me wonder if it's done via HUNTS_VERMIN or something new.

Good question- my personal bet is that it is a new thing, maybe an interaction of some sort. This is based solely on the fact that he mentioned "your viewing pleasure," which leads me to imagine, say, chickens scratching up the grass in a tile. Should be exciting.

In other news, another day of sponsorship stuff, and then... well, I suppose it depends how many horrible crashes and terrible things Threetoe found/is finding. 2-2 is looking like a good bet, which would make me happy since that would be perfectly timed for my days off. My luck, it'll get put off until the 5th, at which point I'll have to choose between DF and adequate sleep.

Groundhog's Day is Feb 2.

Ah, in my haste to make yet another clever remark I misread that.  That looks like January 1, but since January is almost over, my brain skipped to the next month.

No real need.  There's already a ton of cash in adventure mode and not much to spend it on.  At least needing food will help drain off some of that cash.

I've been expecting early* February as the most likely time for months. It's rather vindicating to see that as time progresses, my ballpark guesstimating from ages ago looks increasingly likely, with no real change besides the margin of error shrinking.

The new shops will give us better a better ability to spend money too. Probably not enough that we'll covet coinage, but it should help a bit. Once we get sites and livestock become available we'll have a boundless cash-sink to boot. We can be ranchers.

I'm hoping that the new manner of tracking items in the village will lead to animal corpses/remains eventually being carved into cool items to be bought again later.

On that note...

Are there any plans to have 'custom order' type stores, where you supply the materials and money and receive an item made from it, like, say, a tooth amulet kept as a trophy, or a dragon hide armour?

I know you can do this stuff with reactions already, but, puh-leese, it's not legit till it's vanilla.
