New Canon 5D3 firmware announcement

Canon has announced a new firmware upgrade for the Canon 5D3 but given its release date as April 2013. Perhaps I am missing something here but why would Canon announce the release of new firmware and describe its functionality (making available cross-type focus points at f/8 among other things) 5 months before its availability? Has it done this before?

I would not have thought they would announce it until it was nearly ready for release.
