It seems that Canon has a press conference onthe Monday 20th August (DPR) a new IXUS is supposedly around, butexpectations are for the 40D
On a German board, there was a link to aJapanese board, with a post on the 40D

A 10MP sensor might signal a lull in the MP race and aconcentration on image quality.

Also in Spanish (another language I not well up with ;-), theres astudy of past Canon product launches which predicts the 40D launchto be on 23rd August...
Meanwhile at the other end of the rumour[troll] spectrum there is a DPR post saying that there wont be a40D this year because the 30D is so wonderful - suffice to say itssomeones first post. I tend to agree with the person thatcommented "I want my 10 seconds of life back"
