Actually, the official announcement from Lamy was a few weeks ago. Looking forward to April -- I may have to break down and get me one of these. I particularly liked that there was a side by side photo with one of the purple Al-Stars (which I had considered getting at one point, but I didn't like how sharp the edges on the section on the Al-Star; and I'm hoping that the edges on the Safari will not be as severe as they were on the Al-Star),
Ironically, I had asked GPC about it when I first heard about it (on FPN, in another thread) and was having an IM chat with someone in their customer service department (initially about something else) -- and at that point they hadn't gotten the news, and so had no info about it.
