  The software patents directive has been withdrawn!

I'ts been sent back to the committee stage to be fixed
because there was too much contraversy or too many amendments

It will go to plenary again after JURI do some more work on
it.  Possibly september 22nd, probably early October.

This kicks ass.

Here's my source (I confirmed it with a phone call)

Subject: McCarthy report

we have received indications that the McCarthy report has been withdrawn from next week's European Parliament agenda. No further details at the moment but the most likely explanation is that it requires further examination at committee level. 

best wishes
