I believe it also appeared with the mage-hunter in Pyramid #3/109: Thaumatology V.

Ah! Good, far as I'm concerned the more people who see it the better. It is a HUGE improvement over the old one and I hope makes it into an updated Style Guide.
I am only on p. 21 but wow this issue is great!
Ill do a detailed review once the thread is up but Wrestlers are seriously powerful and the Astroduel setting is AWESOME and would make a fantastic Space Opera setting. I mean Car Wars in Space? And the ships are affordable on a reasonable budget.

Oh, just to make sure there's no misunderstanding:

The wrestler is support for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game; that's why it uses the new template format. (There are also notes for using it with the rest of GURPS, but we kinda bend the rules sometimes with Pyramid.)

That's not to say that the new template may or may not find its way to the rest of GURPS at some point (not really my domain) . . . but I just wanted to be clear that this article was just following past precedent for its part of the GURPSiverse.

And today, we have Dungeon Fantasy: Traps. This seems to be the PDF that was a stretch goal for the DFRPG kickstarter, like Against The Rat-Men in January.

We don't seem to be getting much comments or speculation these days.
All the DFRPG stretch goals are completed.
Any spec hopes for this year in GURPS?

More Power-Ups (Skills, Techniques, Disadvantages) or other items useful across genres.

More practically, most folks who care about this have learned how to read the tea leaves over the last decade. Ten years ago, things were not as easy to predict; for example, a major release came over the Christmas/New Year's break in 2007.

EDIT: And, it looks like you have to move the Pyramid release date, as nothing is up on Warehouse 23 yet.

I'd just be happy to see the six items in the current news to come out. Of course, with us being almost 3 full months into 2018 without any new (to those who got all the KS goodies with DFRPG) releases, it seems like 6 new items are all we're likely to see this year.

"Steven and I reviewed a large number of queries and proposals for future GURPS supplements."
I like the wording large number.
And its official, no new release today so next week is Pyramid. Only 3 left on the wishlist
Hot Spots and Locations
Alternate GURPS
After the End
Ill go with Hot Spots this month and Alt GURPS for April.

EDIT
Updated the first page.
I think Phil might have two Steampunk items pending but its possible one was just a big rewrite so got a second first draft.
Also it appears we have 2 Monster Hunter items coming up. 1 By PK and another by Christopher Rice aka Ghostdancer.

In terms of speculation, could Kromm's Dungeon Fantasy 20: ????? be coming out on April 5? I forget whether "quotes and art notes" suggest an impending final layout, or an earlier step in the process.

Phil Masters' Steampunk 2: Steam & Shellfire is in final-draft form, and could use more period art than custom pieces; May 3 might be a reasonable release date.

I think you've got too many Steampunk volumes on the list: #2 is in final draft, #3 has just been submitted in first draft, and I don't think we've heard anything about a #4.

A few other corrections for the list: since Pyramid issues come out on the next-to-last Thursday rather than the third Thursday, the prospective dates should be March 22 rather than March 15 (obviously); May 24 rather than May 17; Aug 23 rather than Aug 16; and Sep 20 rather than Sep 27. November will probably be early, as currently indicated, to avoid the Thanksgiving holiday.
