We will know at least one by tomorrow (whichever is the playtest).

The new sub-sub-classes will be:
* Magician. A subsubclass of Mage, the magician has two implements, wand and hat, one familiar (rabbit) and series of basic tricks.
* Crook. A subsubclass of Thief, the Crook can only use a shiv, which allows him to use his only power... Shank.
* Angry Vicar, a subsubclass of warpriest, the angry vicar has two attacks -- Shame and Lecture.
* Hitter. A subsubclass of Slayer, the Hitter hits things.
* Gatherer. A subsubclass of Hunter, it doesn't actually do anything, but pick up the stuff other players might leave behind.
Future Essentials2 classes include the Security Guard (Sentinel2), the Hexknife (Hexblade2), the Webelos (Scout2), the Gallant (Cavalier2) and the Goofus (Knight2).
These will all be detailed in the box set called Heroes of the Futile Marketing.
(Though what they should really release tomorrow is the Essentialized version of the Witchalok!)

I really wanna see the MONK!
I have Monasteries in my World and love playing them!
Can't wait to find out....

I have the sneaking suspicion that Duergar might pop up in the PHB3.
Nah it'll just be a bloodline feat for dwarves that gives you one of those dart shooting beards ;)
Oddly enough Duergar are the only race i can think of i'd like to see out of PHB3. A bunch more bloodline feats would be nice to see though. Something new would be nice though, Dragonborn are currently the only new race.
As in you would prefer the Duergar to be in the PHB3 or left out of the PHB3?
And while Dragonborn are new they kind of have their spiritual ancestors within earlier editions and campaign worlds.
Crazy english language. I meant i'd like them in the book. And yes I know Dragonborn aren't 100% new, but coming up with something 100% new is also difficult. Most remaning class races are fairly setting specific, except for these Dromites and Elan i've barely heard of.
Most races that are 'half something' can pretty much be made with bloodline feats.
At least in the text for Duergar in Thunderspire Labyrinth, they are said to be "distant kin to dwarves". This is a similar distinction that was made for drow, eladrin and elves.
Duergar might be an interesting choice, if they play up their psionic aspects in the background fluff. Perhaps they got warped by exposure to the Far Realm/experimentation by illithids. I'd guess that the racial stats for duergar might be CON/CHA, since gith already use CON/INT and charisma fits the psionic flavor well.
Of course, we might see azer as a playable race instead (or in addition), but only after the elemental source is released, which means a possible PHB4 race.
Minotaurs have already been covered in Dragon. I like the idea of Duergar, though.

I went over this. Dragon isn't a permanent placeholder for anything. Any race in the ghost of the mag is a likely candidate for the PHB3 (and Setting Player Guides) as they will not be reprinted in the annual/Bi-annual soft cover release. (if one ever comes out, that is)
DDi is extra stuff, not core.
Any reason why Drow wouldn't be considered? Not in either of the phb so far, nor have they received a Dragon write-up that I know of ... they've already given us two "elf" races, why not a third?
Seems they'd go well with the "Shadow" power too ...
Drow are in the Forgotten Realm's Player's Guide, and WotC seems pretty adamant about not reprinting stuff from one book into another, except power keywords.
Ah, I'm not a huge FR fan, so I don't think I've ever even bothered to find out the contents of that particular book.
Sigh, another one I have to go buy now ...
And everyone else has repeatedly gone over this with you: Dragon IS core. No matter how many times you protest, you can't change facts.
It has always been advertised as extra content, a help for the DM and extra goodies for the player. DDi - "Bring even more to your game table with D&D Insider. With quick access to exclusive material and digital tools D%DI(tm) will help enhance every aspect of your tabletop game."
There has been official word that the only place for new Races and Classes will be in the PHB's and the Setting's Player Guides. Those, it is assumed, that are in the DDi are preview material. It won't be in the Annual soft cover, that being saved for powers, feats and other things, and it won't be in any power source master books.
Whether or not the Minotaur will be in a PHB or stay online is a question, but the possibility that it will adorn the pages of the PHB3 exists, or it could be in the Dark Sun Player's Guide. The Dragon "article" should be considered a preview for future releases.
