I am personally hoping for an earlier date, i.e. still in 2009. This all hinges (apparently) on SRM 2.0 release, which is important for many folks for a number of reasons (vSphere 4 support being probably the key one).
You may fish for some hints & updates on VMware communities (e.g. http://communities.vmware.com/message/1309615#1309615)

The focus for SRM is on vSphere (esx v4). When the development of this version is complete, they will work again on SRM for esx 3.x (which is a seperated version).
SRM for vSphere is expected this year. SRM for esx v3.x will come later
