One... last... time... (and without having read back through everything to see if other similar responses have been made ;) )

We plan on releasing the current Release Candidate that is in testing after the holidays unless something is found in testing that prevents it, or we feel we MUST add a last minute feature that just can NOT wait for a later beta update.  I can not give a date, hour, minute, second answer--I don't have one.  But "early January" would be a fairly safe assumption as long as the following criteria are met:

1) Testing shows there's nothing terribly broken in the current Beta Release Candidate
2) Nothing unexpected crops up with the commerce system
3) No last minute, mandatory, additions are added, thus requiring another build and testing of that build
4) Gjon says "Go"

That is an official an answer as I can give.  We will know better after everyone is back in the office after the holidays (and you wonder why we didn't want to release BEFORE the holidays and then break for vacation--look up and all over the forum :) ) and see what testing has found.

Edit: If we can't release we'll let you know.  If we can, OBVIOUSLY you'll know.  In either case, you'll know... And with that, Happy New Year everyone :)
