RE: Reinterpretation of Samrukia as a pterosaur

How reliable are the dates on the Royal Society's journals now?  The special 
dinosaur issue of Proc. R. Soc. B containing the descriptions of *Beishanlong,* 
*Xionguanlong*, *Tianyuraptor* et al. is dated January 22, 2010, but I've heard 
the print edition was actually distributed before the end of 2009.
