I blush and stand corrected. It indeed said "will be" and  "shortly". I still maintain it would be better to hold the announcement until the moment it can simply say "are".

Indeed, there is:
https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2014-April/000182.html

The 'real' problem is, only very few who actually 'read' the
announcement/release notes. I have no idea why people don't listen to
any advice nor actually read?
I have spent 3 hours or more today just to repeat the same sentence to
Ubuntu GNOME users: "please read the release notes".

The answer of all/most of the Qs - at least in my case which is Ubuntu
GNOME related - that I have answered today, was here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes/UbuntuGNOME

Most of users blame the system but when they think about it for a
minute, they will figure out they didn't read the notes :)

It happens with each release and I don't think it will ever over :(
