Is there some sort of pattern to when it comes out? for the last 3 months it was either on the 1st or the 6th. Is that just because of the the Red Box being released on that day?
It was actually announced, here in the DDI section of the forums under announcements.Joe

Guys cut them some slack. They are adding a compendium worth of monsters, a "powers" guide, and a new campaign setting with new things like character themes and everything needs to work together seamlessly. Heck, if this means future updates are closer to the release of future books the I'll gladly put off my Dark Sun campaign for a few weeks. Maybe I'll adapt Expedition to the Barrier Peaks to pass the time.
Well, yeah, they are adding a lot, but its not like its one guy adding it all by hand. The monster entries can be added by script. The powers are the same. The builds and themes have to be done by hand.
BUT THEY HAD A MONTH TO DO THIS.
I am sorry, but this is ridiculous.
here's the announcement

"OMG, WE'Z GONNA HAF 2 RITE SUTFF DOWN FOR 2 WEKKS! TEH HORORZ!"Geez. Get a grip, people.
Truthfully, it *is* all about the paying customer. If the customers withdraw their subscriptions, then it will be Wizards that gripes about not getting the money.

A bunch of self-entitled narcissisticpeople that bitch, whine and moan when things dont go the way they think it should. It is after all all about them.

D&D Insider Subscriber,
Unfortunately, we will not have a data update ready for the D&D Insider tools in September. The process of integrating the new changes from Dark Sun and Essentials is taking a bit longer than we expected, and we plan to update the Character Builder in early October. We will continue to keep you informed of any changes to the schedule, and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Changing from the 7th to the 21st is not a 'delay.' That is dropping a month from the rotation and compensating by pushing the next month forward some. Expect the 21st to be 'delayed' as well.
I am concerned only because it seems like the rest of the promised products in DDi have fallen to the wayside, indefinitely. Where is the character visualizer? How about the Electronic tabletop? Is there ANY info on those features at all?On the flip-side, been very happy with character builder, pretty slick program. I was really looking forward to the table top and visualizer, though. Not sure if im dissapointed or not. I'm going to go eat some ice cream.
