As with most open source projects, any given version will be released once the folks actually working on it feel that it's ready to be released.
Pestering the authors/contributors incessantly about things like the release date is bad 'netiquette -- so, if you hear somebody whining about releases and release dates, please point them to this FAQ.
As usual, if you have a particularly burning desire for a specific feature/bug-fix or just want that version out sooner, one way to induce the authors and contributors is to actually contribute money to them to work on it. Sometimes this works wonders while other times it doesn't help much because the authors probably have day jobs too.
