Well, I guess we didn't make the optimistic "Next Week" schedule, but there is good reason for this! From being a minor patch similar to 2.1, the current work in progress version is quickly turning into quite a serious overhaul and bug fixing update to the Enhanced Solar System.
Feature: Custom Skybox
Ilithos: Complete rework
Droo: 2 New Bases and 2 Landing Platform Vessels, Clouds (seen from orbit only), and colour/biome tweaks.
Urados: Edited colour bands
Tydos: Edited colour bands (WIP)
Taurus: Fixed Atmosphere and completed opaque atmosphere visuals, reduced size & made "more extreme" terrain
Cylero: Dusty Atmosphere visuals
Hados: Better detail and colour variation
Orcus: Fixed Atmosphere
Juno: Appearance and colour rework
All Moons: Complete gravity value overhaul, allowing orbiting of all bodies
We're also doing a lot of XML maintenance and optimisation, plus the ongoing transition to the new planetary system/celestial body sharing method. The initial 3.0 release was a bit of a "guinea pig" for this area of the website, so hopefully with 3.1 we can consolidate ESS once again. The game developers are planning a new beta version within the near future which will correct many of the issues that have been effecting players, we are probably going to release sometime after this. I cant give any exact dates though!
