I asked about the roadmap because your mention of "upcoming release" was the first in this thread - but I can see it mentioned several times in the roadmap. So I was confirming you were referring to the roadmap. Content has been released separately for a long time now, usually it's only linked to build updates when a new build is needed to support features of that content (physics or graphics). The roadmap mentions several areas that have seen development, I think we'll get a build 1121 (or 112x, doesn't really matter exactly) this month as some of those relate to online code so the update will probably break compatibility and warrant a build number change. I suspect the new UI becoming default will take a little longer but you never know. I don't think anything has really changed in this regard.
