They're planning on using AmigaOS 3.9 for the '060 and yet-to-be-designed '070. They might even get it to run OS4 for Classics using a Sonnet Crescendo accelerator card from the world of Macs.
Regarding the summer's end deadline, they had to redesign the motherboard to knock $130 USD off of the end-user price. That pushed the deadline back to early November. The good news is that it won't need a new board design for the consumer version later on, and it will be easier to test the not-yet-designed 68070 core by removing the 68060 or PPC-based accelerator from the PCI slot.
