It is usually published on the Boost calendar (see
http://www.boost.org/development/index.html). There had been some recent
discussion on the list about extending the beta period for releases, so
the 1.49 schedule is still flux while we try to accommodate that
feedback. Once we know for certain, it'll go on the calendar and there
will be an announcement here.
