Anybody heard anything about the 5D iii firmware update in April?

Has anybody heard any news about when the firmware update for the 5D3 with uncompressed HDMI out will be released? As far as I know, it was originally scheduled for release today (April 1st), but haven't heard any updates since October.
Thanks.

It's supposed to be late April...along with the flash focus assist fix.

The flash problem fix was announced much later and was set for late April.  The original April firmware release didn't give a date.

You're probably right that Canon will screw those of us waiting for the earlier announced enhancements and not release anything until the flash issue is resolved.  The problem with that is, if they insist on waiting for the flash fix before releasing the feature enhancement firmware, they could easily miss an April release if the problem ends up requiring more time to implement a solution...
