Is 12.1 RU2 still going to be released today?

It seems that SEP 11.0.7 MP3 release date is delayed, due to Quality Assurance process of SEP 12.1 RU2.

Symantec wants to release SEP 11.0.7 MP· after SEP 12.1 RU2 release.

So it seems, we can only wait patiently.

In any case, I would suggest Symantec to remove SEP 11.0.7 MP3 release date from the website: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=releasedetails&key=54619 , because this information is wrong, and can create doubts on their customers.
