Tau bits seem to keep coming out of the woodwork, and here is the very latest on the Tau Happenings. Included are stealth and crisis suits, fire warriors, the sky ray, and equipment.
Just to be aware, these are mentioned as being very early rumors (ie playtesting).

Caveat: Many of these are said to be "in process". Don't look for *exact match* rules to survive to the printed codex.
Crisis Suits: Look for more posable new models. Unit keeps its high level of customization, with several upgrades to stat lines possible. New flakk missile pods. New combi-kit includes Broadside parts.
Stealth Suits: Models unchanged. Have stealth, (obviously), plus optional drone granting shrouding.
Sky Ray: Last edition's trainwreck gets a new lease on life. Flakk missiles, plus has orbital bombardment (much like SM version, but with a lingering effect).
Fire Warriors: Same nasty gun. Still BS:3, but with a Shas'O can upgrade unit to BS:4.
Drones: Any drone can be used for Look Out Sir rolls for any model in the unit they are attached to.
Markerlights: A single hit increases BS of all other units targeting the victim by +1. Multiple markerlights have no additional effects. OUCH - look out for possible BS:5, Fire Warrior volleys now! Markerlights improve snapfire against marked flyers to 5+ instead of 6, but must first hit the flyer with a 6 themselves.
Networked Markerlights: A longer range twin linked version. Vehicles only.
