Brazilan and Japanese locale added in 4.0.6 - Blizzard Slate confirmed?
Digging through the 4.0.6 files yields interesting results, it seems that two localizations have been added to the game: ptBR and jaJP.
These locales are respectively the Portuguese-Brazil and the Japanese-Japan ones, they're actually used in other Blizzard games and I guess you can check SC2Mapster - Galaxy Editor
if you need a confirmation of some sort.
Now you're probably going to ask me why you should care about that (unless you're Brazilian) and the answer is very simple! Remember the leaked Blizzard Product Slate
from a few months back? WoW Brazil
was actually there, and the timing is near perfect.
Things are starting to make sense and it might be safe to assume that Blizzard is still on schedule for the WoW changes, if everything works as planned we probably won't have to wait too much time before the next expansion is released and I guess the current plan is as follow:
Hopefully Patch 4.1 will hit the test realms very soon and I'll have plenty of stuff to report.
