Is it close?
Yes; I was looking for it today.
There may be a short additional delay :)
Any pressing issues?
Not really; just "last minute" adjustments and additions that are
expected when a release has not been cut for 3 months.
For example, Parrot has a new garbage collection scheme, and Rakudo
knows to select it (instead of the old GC), but Rakudo Star needed to
be taught about the new scheme (because "Star doesn't use Rakudo's
configure to build parrot").
Also, the emergency migration of the rakudo.org site is taking up some
key people's tuits today.
Did I miss an announcement?
No; I think that the announcement is waiting on the release itself.
Hope this helps,
