What's the latest with Booker in the circuits and districts?

The US Sentencing Commission, as revealed on this page, has not yet made public any post-Booker district court data since presenting cumulative quarterly data through close-of-business on June 30, 2006.  I cannot help but wonder whether, with Booker circuit jurisprudence now pretty well-developed, district court sentencing patterns have had any distinctive features over the last four (unreported) months.

In addition, we are now approaching two full years since Booker, and there has now been a few thousand post-Booker sentences reviewed on appeal.  I am hopeful (but not really optimistic) that the USSC might report some appellate statistics before too long.
