Sooooo when is the Windows Phone 7.8 update coming out?

Anyone have any idea on this? I've searched around the internet and haven't found much in regards to it. I've heard its going to be out of band, which is nice to hear, but I haven't seen that confirmed either.

My trusty HTC HD7 needs some love too! (At-least until next summer when I opt for another Windows Phone.)

And this is my first post here. Had an account here since the site started...and never posted. odd.
