I would not rely on these two ones too much.
I have no time any more to update them, and I think Ang does not either
As she said, we try to update now the news on the foundation website. 
And the Quarto is there to summarize news four times per year.

The announcement list was just set up very recently (2 weeks I think), 
so is still in setting up stage (but please register).

4th place to get information is simply here.

I am personally trying to put the official information more on the wmf 
site than on meta now, to try to convey the habit that official 
information is to be found on wmf, while meta, freely editable, is more 
work into progress and often a lot of speculations... and though in 
interesting source (I love meta :-)) should not be necessarily 
considered an authority source for information....

As things are, none of these four places are reporting official attempts 
to push for 1.0. As far as I am aware, it is mostly that Jimbo 
participated to interviews in the past days and mentionned this.
