Don't Expect 1.9 Too Soon

Helios reports a thread Tigole made, here's a shorted down version:
[Patch 1.8 is] live on the Test Server right now which means it should be making its live debut in the next week or two. We appreciate everyone who ... [helped] tune the 4 green dragons ... these dragons are supposed to be more difficult than Azuregos or Kazzak, yet not as difficult as some of the hardest encounters in the game.

...Patch 1.9 is going to be one of our biggest content updates to date featuring .... two raid zones. The Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (20 person raid zone) will be on par with Zul'Gurub in difficulty... The Temple of Ahn'Qiraj (40 person raid zone) is absolutely massive... [the] zone [is] on par with BWL.

We're also hard at work on a pretty epic world event that will lead to the opening of the gates of Ahn'Qiraj. More information will be coming out about this from our community team in the near future...

Because of the sheer scope of what we're going to include in 1.9.0 the development cycle might take slightly longer than the 1.8.0 cycle.
Crap. (emphasis mine)

In other words, don't expect to play your Pally on the 1.9 test server for quite a while. Hopefully though not too long after the release of 1.8 we'll see a preview of the updated talent, just like Hunters got theirs quite a while in advance.
