I won't be buying it as I already own most of the rom files and workbenches legally, plus classicWB is more than enough for my workbench needs.

Ok, where on the site do you go to pre-order? The only mention of 2005 is the front page where it says
IMMINENT: Amiga Forever 2005

This web site is currently being updated to reflect the release of Amiga Forever 2005. All customers who purchased Amiga Forever 6.0 on or after June 27, 2005, will receive an email with free upgrade instructions.

Is it possible to buy one of those decals separately? One of those would look great on the front of my Power Tower.

@ Oryp

You can get Amiga Forever 2005 now! as there is a download option under where it say's Quick Buy Links on the main page. You can also get the Premium version which is on CD/DVD, which is the one I have gone for. There has been a problem with the production of the DVD's so it's going to take a while longer to get this version of it

I have been told though, it'll be any time now for the CD/DVD versions release

Here's a list of World wide Resellers:

The Premium Edition of Amiga Forever is available from the companies listed. All companies ship internationally, although in order to save on shipping costs you may want to use a US company for US destinations and a European company for European destinations. Other destinations should be covered equally well by both sources.
