Well, Rupert Murdoch said the Sun on Sunday would launch "very soon" when he spoke to the troops at News International headquarters in Wapping last week.
Tonight the Sun confirmed that the new Sunday edition will launch next weekend.
Sun editor Dominic Mohan said: "This is a truly historic moment in newspaper publishing and I am proud to be part of it. The Sun's future can now be reshaped as a unique seven-day proposition in both print and digital. Our readers' reaction to the announcement of a seventh-day Sun has been huge and we won't let them down."
