My guess is next week, so they can fix bugs and still have time the following week to set up for blizzcon.Some speculation: if they don't release 3.0 before blizzcon, then it might be more likely that the big announcement may be deathknights with 3.0.

If they announce DK for the patch why by the spend $40 dollors on the expansion. Just so you can grind 10 more levels. I dont see that the DK will be up. Maybe something off the wall will be announced but I could be wrong.

You cant unlock deathknights unless you have the expansion installed. So I don't think anyone will be playing one even if 3.0 has them included.

I'm pretty sure Death Knights at 55 are part of the load-balancing strategy, anyway. Not only are they splitting the Northrend newcomers into two zones, a big chunk of each realm's population will be in the Death Knight starter zone and then Outland for a while, leveling their Death Knights. By the time the Death Knights are in Borean Tundra or Howling Fjord, the rest of the population should be spread over the rest of Northrend. Seems like a good plan to avoid the Hellfire Peninsula train wreck from Burning Crusade's release.

There's a thread on the beta forum today with a Tigole response once again confirming that you need Wrath to roll a death knight.They don't give away one of their main selling points for free.
