You may have missed the forum post I used to update those interested, but I also have some new information.
If you didn't already know, the team has moved to Vancouver to work closely with HotHead Games.
I was in the dark for a while after they moved, so I recently spoke to the CEO of CambrianHouse for an update which clarified some things:
Only three developers moved to Vancouver to work on gwabs (Danger, Mikey, and Greg). However, he also said the team grew substantially by like 8 members, which is great.
Gwabs beta is projected to be released in January -- but you know how that goes :) Hopefully they're accurate with this projection.
By the way, if you guys are interested in crowdsourcing games for profit, there is a cool contest going on at CambrianHouse, and the code type is open to any language that can handle 3D fairly efficiently: Develop a prototype for ChessSphere and win $600 and shares in what sounds like a worth-while product.

A personal update:
I'm working full-time as a PHP developer. Bet 'cha didn't see that coming.
