We're talking about an october-ish time frame for beta-ish releasing, with the goal of releasing final before Valencia.

The layout manager won't be part of core, of course, but will work with 5.5. An earlier version has already been used by me to build a production site, MGH is about to use it for a project, and I'll be using it to build one or two production sites this fall. At the moment I've only rewritten a handful of .LRN portlets to work with the new scheme (this consists primarily of 1) simplifying the portlet code and 2) fixing bugs and dependencies in packages like calendar which to my great annoyance have include scripts that only work within the package itself or (sigh) .LRN).
