So, here my needs:

i have to power 3 pedals 10/20 ma each and a whor... hem.. the glab gsc-2. I've asked g-lab techs about power needs, and without using the 9v out it requires 330Ma @ 12v in the worst condition. That means the iso-5 is * perfectly to my setup, BUT i am 100% confident it wont be out until april 2010.

Looking at specs i could join the 2 high current outs of PP2, but what exactly means unregolated? does it supply 12v or it will be floating?

Unregulated means that the output voltage will be dependent on the current demand. As shown in the Pedal Power 2+ manual, on output 5 or 6 switched away from Normal you can expect an output of 14.5V with a 50mA load... while a 200mA load will pull the voltage down to 9V.

I know this will only fuel the fire, but I know a dude on the inside and he completely disagrees with your estimate on the release date of ISO-5. ;) Hint: it's much sooner than you think.

Hmm.. so this mean that my board "might" crash by power fault when limit conditions are reached. Rare to happen, but possible.

I am nailed up to Iso-5. My thougths were based on marketing considerations, but i will be glad to finish and post pictures of my pedalboard sooner :)

Thanx for advice
