Will the Greek font be the same as UBS 4? UBS italic font seems unnecessary and unnecessarily light (could be a little bolder as well). Form identification assistance and on-page lexical help (plus whatever other help items are available) are welcome in my class.

Thought listers might find this of interest, I just heard about it last

UBS Greek New Testament
A Reader's Edition
Edited by Barbara Aland and Barclay M., Jr. Newman
Hendrickson Publishers, Forthcoming January 2008
732 pages, English and Greek
Flexible casebound
ISBN: 1-59856-285-1
ISBN13: 978-1-59856-285-9
List Price: $69.95
Your Price: $48.90

    The Reader's Edition combines the Bible text of the latest edition
of the UBS4 Greek New Testament, edited by Barbara Aland, et. al., with
an Onpage Greek-English Dictionary, compiled by Barclay M. Newman.

    * On-page Dictionary providing translations of all vocabulary items
occurring 30 times or less in the New Testament at the bottom of each
    * Translations given according to context
    * Definitions of idiomatic word combinations
    * Grammatical analysis of all difficult verb forms
    * Reader-friendly layout enabling the reader to transfer easily from
text to dictionary and vice versa
    * An appendix providing translations of all vocabulary items
occurring more than 30 times in the New Testament
    * Including the maps from the UBS Greek New Testament

So, it appears to be a combination of Zerwick's "A Grammatical Analysis
Greek of the Greek New Testament" ( although a bit abbreviated),
Zondervan's "Reader's Greek New Testament" and the UBS text. I suspect
there will be page proofs at AAR/SBL in November.

I doubt that professors will allow it in class :)
