Came across a link which I thought was worth a look, and ofc a google translate.

https://es-es.facebook.com/events/147123678824309/

Translation of text was :

NOTE: DATE CHANGE. AUGUST 5 NOW!!
Join the webcast to learn how Check Point R77 help users maximize performance and improve safety.

Would really have liked it to have been real, desperate to upgrade R75.46 environment, without fresh install. That's if there is an upgrade path from R75.46 > R77. Come on phoneboy, spill the beans, or at least a yes/no answer to 'R76.10 or R77 release date announcement before end of August??'

Not sure why you're harassing PhoneBoy about it, he already said he can't tell us. A better solution is to call your SE and ask them.

According to Tobias (http://blog.lachmann.org/?p=2010) it's really close, so why not just wait? Although I am not sure why you're so eager to be on it. Even if they based R77 off of R75.47 patchset, I would not want to be the first person running it. Sad to think anyone on R76 is just stuck in la-la land at the moment, no patches and already a full feature-set behind. :( :(

Forum posts have the same issue as text messages, no tone. Maybe I should have put a winky smiley face at the end of my spill the beans comment. I apologise if it my comment felt like harassment as it was purely meant as a jovial comment as I know phoneboy couldn't comment until it is official.
Keen to see R76.10 on our test system then go live, and then test R77.
Three things in life are guaranteed, death, taxes and software having bugs, even if it is patched to the hilt.
