Maybe a bit more explicitness about what needs to be done, and how
long the people working on it think it might take.  It doesn't need to
be accurate, but it would give people more of an idea on the
timeframe: will woody be released this month?  This year?

The problem with "It will be released when it's ready" is that it can
be interpreted as meaning "It'll be released whenever we get around to
finishing it."  It sends a completely different message than "It'll be
released when x, y, and z are done and working."
