Not sure whether you checked before posting, but it
mentions its now in pre-release stage at the moment, so I'd guess it's
pretty close now.  I also read somewhere today (sorry, forgot where) that
it wasn't expected to be very long at all between gcc-3.2.3 and gcc-3.3. 
Looking at the mailing list briefly for the last 2 days there's a big
thread called "gcc 3.3" you might want to take a look - see if it mentions
timescales in there:
