It's very simple:

bad reporting.

You see, the Q&A session at the bottom gives you Oleg's reply: Q4 2007. Whoever wrote the piece you quoted mis-reported "Q4 2007" as "November 2006". It was mis-reported probably over confusion between BoB and the new add-ons which will be available next moth, ie: Novemeber 2006

Just because you read something reported by some offcial sounding sorce, that does not make the reporter immune to mistakes or misunderstanding http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
