Mongoose's Traveller will, almost certainly, come out in February - and is looking like a modernised version of Classic Traveller.

Traveller 5th Edition was projected to come out this year, but has been mooted as coming out next year, with a CD-Rom/PDF file coming out earlier. Previous files make it seem more like an updated version of T4.

There were press statements about the two games being compatable, although this may be just media spin to ensure that neither product has it's potential market damaged. There has been little public development of T5 since that point, however, and it's not entirely clear what is happening with the material, or actual release dates.

(I gathered from context that RTT seemed to be shorthand here for Mongoose Traveller, but I'm glad that I now know why.)

So far, it looks like RTT is CT+ done well. I'm very happy with what Gareth's been doing, and am looking forward to buying my first Mongoose product in Feb.

I thought I'd heard that T5 was supposed to be out on CD by the end of the year. Did anyone else hear that?

Yes, I heard that, too. But, once the summer release date slipped, I figured it would take longer...
