You wanna know my guess?!
WARNING: sarcasm below!!!!!
It never gets released because its Vaporware, they pretend to release phpBB3.0 soon to keep you away from using more advanced BBSs...... its like with Duke Nukem you know??? Thy release it when its finished and when thy are sure to have the best piece of Software out there so they mustnt fear competition........

And a more precisely Date:
Tue Jan 19 03:14:07 2038.

This forum is running of a proof of existance development version of 3.0. Moreso you can download it, poke around in it and install it if you want. I don't see how it's vapour ware as it appears very real (but yet unfinished) to me.

I just wanted to make a kind of joke, surely phpBB isn`t Vaporware and I really look forward to get a copy of phpBB3.0 final somewhen in time....

phpBB 3.0 will be released at the same time that the http://www.phpBB.com" target="_blank site comes back.
Or at the same time that Tool's new album is released.

I'd say around 2009 or 2010. No joking or sarcasm. I'm serious.

If phpBB 2.0.19 is the final version of 2.0.x, then I think you might get it done by 2008 or maybe even Fall 2007.

To get it done by December 2006 we may need to make massive donations so that the Development Team could afford to quit their day jobs.

I reckon a pre-Alpha version should be ready by Summer 2006. The Alpha should come on Fall 2006, the pre-Beta should show up on Jan 2007, the Beta should come on Summer 2007, The first Release Candidate should come 2008, several more RCs throughout 2008, then the final product by 2009 or 2010.
