I'm sure Chris will release them when he thinks it is appropriate. 
However, you need not wait, for the sources are only a few dozen
keystrokes away...

1)cvs login
>>>password: anoncvs
2)cvs -z9 co binutils
3)mkdir build
4)cd build
5)../src/configure --prefix=../install
6)make; make install
7)cd ../install; tar -jcvf /binutils-20020826-1.tar.bz2 *
8)copy the tarball to {temp dir}/binutils and point setup.exe there
to install...

Eight easy steps to get a binutils prerelease.  Easy as Dell, easy as
apple pie =).
