There has been no announcement at this time, because nothing has been released
at this time, so you didn't miss anything. On the other hand, we have been
discussing this in IRC for several weeks now. ;)

The plan was that the current mirror is overloaded, and couldn't handle the
load of another release. We have been migrating to a new server and a RRDNS
mirror solution. With this, we have been updating the new mirror pool with 
the updates and new releases. What you will find there is the release of 
Centos-3.3 for i386 and x86_64 as well as the alpha cAos-2. Expect the 
announcements to come after the mirrors have caught up with the changes and
community testing.

If you would like to test Centos-3.3 please feel free to grab the ISO's or do
a yum upgrade by pointing to an updated mirror and changing the $releasever to
3.3 in yum.conf. Please send bugs to centos-devel at caosity.org.

Stay tuned for the release announcements.
