Sorry, I raised expectations which I cannot fulfil: I've got no inside 
information about LaTeX3, it's just a personal feeling motivated by the 
facts that the LaTeX3 web page <http://www.latex-
project.org/latex3.html> hasn't been updated for almost two years and 
the related experimental code <http://www.latex-
project.org/code/experimental/> is about one-year-old.

But since I have never attended a TUG meeting, maybe I'm just plain 
(sic) wrong! I just had a look at the TUG site and saw that the program 
of this year's Annual Meeting has one keynote speech on ConTeXt, so this 
one seems pretty much alive, and speeches on Unicode and Omega, so maybe 
Omega isn't dying after all (one hypothesis I made in one posting to 
this list a couple of weeks ago).
