"the removal of the Mace Spec bonus is completely in-line with Blizzard's stance on Maces since day 1. They've always been the PvP weapon for Rogues, and anyone holding on to a mace for PvE should look to sharding it. Either Fist/Dagger or Fist/Sword will become Combat's weapons of choice"If by "Mace spec bonus" you mean the random stun chance, that was removed ages in patch 3.0.2. The current mace bonus grants armor pen which is actually getting buffed in patch 3.1 and will hopefully be more comparable.Dual weapon specialisations such as Fist/Sword will no longer be viable due to having insufficient spare points now Lightning Reflexes is a DPS talent.Hence combat rogues will be fist/dagger, sword/sword or mace/mace.

He's not talking about mace stun, he's talking about the additional 10% haste that the devs said would also be rolled into mace spec when they previewed upcoming 3.1 rogue changes. Since then, it has not been mentioned again and has not shown up on any of the patch notes.
