"Is there finally a timeline that tells us when approximately Perl6 will be officially out?"

From the FAQ:

Is there a release date set for perl 6.0 ?

In regards to Perl 6, the answer on release dates is really "when it's ready". There is no major commercial sponsor for the language development so the majority of the work is driven by volunteers and donations from the Perl Foundation (http://www.perlfoundation.org/).

That said, there is much progress being made in the last year, including the Pugs project which allows you to start testing experimenting with some perl 6 features .. now!

For more information on the latest re: perl 6, check out:

http://planetsix.perl.org/
http://dev.perl.org/perl6/
http://www.pugscode.org/
http://www.parrotcode.org/
You may also wish to have a look at some of the Perl6::* modules. which experiment with adding new language features to perl5. See the current list on CPAN (http://search.cpan.org/search?query=Perl6&mode=module).

If you really want to see Perl 6 done faster, the best answer is ... get involved! Sign up for the mailing lists and consider contributing some tests, documentation, or code to the Parrot or Pugs projects depending on your level of experience (or even donate real dollars to the Perl Foundation ;)

Update: Fixed formatting.
