How soon isn't really clear - there's still a little work to be done. Anyway, the Crucible maps are getting another upgrade, so the current Greater Crucible will become Lesser, and a much expanded and improved map will fill in the spot left vacant.
Bishops will be able to be enchanted in 2.8, as well. When enchanted, they will gain a slow, homing projectile attack which can stunlock lesser units in a radius around the impact, as well as dealing sufficient damage to them.
Evil Space Tomato has magically whipped up a Tech Tree Progress display for all classes, which shows your progress towards unlocking units in the upper right corner of the screen. It is currently triggered by the Strife Objectives key bind.
He has also improved the HUD so that it always displays in the bottom right corner of the screen, and works at low resolutions. Each mana bar is also labeled. So, many thanks to him for these fantastic additions!
That brings this a little closer to tournament-shape. I still need some sprites, though! D:
