Wow. Sorry to hear that the greedy Warner Bros. studio execs feel they need more $$$ from a summer release and have pushed the movie back from November 2008 to July 2009 -- and I quote:

I've been reading some reactions where people seem to feel this will somehow improve the quality of the movie -- but I simply don't see how. If the thing is already done (which it appears to be), then all we're talking about is timing the release to potentially make more $$$ for Warner Bros.

The trailers have already been out, so personally I've assumed the movie is ready to go. And nothing that's being said seems to reflect differently...
By the way, there's no proof that the movie will do better with a July release -- is there? Haven't all the Harry Potter movies done well when released? I guess it's all about those first day (and first weekend) numbers now for movies. And defining a success by whether it breaks records.
I'm not going to pretend that I'm not disappointed by the additional wait time, because I am.
But after all, Warner Bros. has said:
And we should believe them WHY?
