While I am no longer a member of a church body that uses NRSV, it is still one of the translations I bring up regularly. I have been wondering when they would have an official review to refresh the translation since it has been a long time since it came out. Of course, we will have to see what the final result is, but it looks like many good scholars are participating in the process.

Looks like it's going to mostly be a text-critical update. I'm glad they're not changing the translation methodology and are only reviewing for terms or phrases that are awkward. The NRSV is my preferred translation and my church also does use it, so hopefully they won't change the feel and flow of it too much.

Do we know when/if Logos is going to make this translation available?

I do not know... and I dont know anything about this translation. For clarification: Do you know if this is a new translation, or an update to the current one? 

Sometimes publishers update a translation and the result is "the same translation, but updated." In other cases, the result is a "new" translation. If the resulting work is considered "the same translation," presumably the NRSV would automatically be updated within Logos. This is what happened with the ESV, for example. If it is a "new" translation, then it would require a separate purchase and the current NRSV would stay the same in Logos.
