Wondering about the USSC's data (and advocacy) plans

Earlier this year, the US Sentencing Commission was doing a great job producing and publishing post-Booker data on its Booker webpage, but now its been more than three months since any new data or information has appeared there.  I hope we see some more district court sentencing data soon, and I still hold out hope that we might also get some sophisticated post-Booker appellate data and analysis at some point. 

Also, the USSC webpage is showing its age by still mentioning Claiborne as a Supreme Court case, while failing to mention Gall or Kimbrough.  Perhaps this is a sign that the USSC did not even consider filling an amicus brief in either of these cases.
