Even though it was expected for a while, I found a new branch in Asterisk svn tree, branches/2.0 and well it was a pleasure to see the screen shots, even though I am yet to compile the new code. The former gui exists as gui version 1.0 on branch/1.0.
Compiling and installation is not a big deal and you can follow the instructions on AsteriskNOW site.
If you feel that you have input for the project, you can find out how to get involved here.
Oh, here are the screen shots released by the team.
