Please Release Me: June 2011 Edition

It is time again for my updated list of new and upcoming releases. (Last month's list is here.) As always, if I've listed you on here and gotten something wrong (or something not ready for primetime), let me know and I'll edit or delete it. And if you're not on here and think you should be, drop me a line, too, and I'll get you added for the next iteration.

I've slightly changed the update conventions from last month. Additions to the list are how noted with a "++"; changes to previously-mentioned items are still indicated with italics.
