When it is done, I guess. I think there are some milestones expected  
this year in the development of LuaTeX, with a first formal release at  
TUG2008. That is late July, and I expect that TeXLive 2008 will  
include a luatex release, if only to get a wider test of the  
application. That said, the disk image gets updated on a regular  
basis, and work is underway for texlive itself to support better  
updating. So a lot is happening, but I don't expect the texlive 2008  
DVD set to be one of my birthday presents (late october).

Remember that a release on December 31st still counts as a 2008  

Is there a particular reason you ask?
