Met local rep while at HD. Rep says if it is on the Web Site now  it will be in stores Aug 15 (at least for his stores) most of the 20v product will be part of a separate news release likely fall availability. Asked about the caulk gun he said it is a major step up from the old 18v, be worth the wait. Had a hands on with flexvolt...WOW Just WOW!!!!  did not have date for power station or 9a battery yet.

One would think that DeWalt would hyper up a press release about new 20V tools. Having said that, they probably don't want to take the luster off of their new platform either...decisions, decisions. Any news on maybe a 20V sander? I heard that they're working on a brad nailer but the biggest concern is size, Stuart on Toolguyd mentioned that DeWalt didn't want it being the same size as their finish nailer.

Well you have to remember they need to compete with their pneumatic counterparts, and pneumatic brad nailers are freaking tiny. Hard to sell on reduced capability due to maneuverability, and it's hard to get the architecture down to that level and maintain power and serviceability as well. That said, I really want to see them produce the unit with a positive placement tip. If it took another year to get that right, I'll wait patiently.

It has to be annoying to some people that it took Dewalt to release a cordless caulk gun for the 20v line. The 20v line is pretty much filled out but some tools took way too long to make in to the line. I get bringing innovation but still 5 years is a long time to wait

Found some info... Looks like there is also a 20v gun for 2 part adhesives as well as the 3 caulking guns

 

 

"DEWALT launches new 20V MAX* Adhesive Guns (DCE560, DCE570, DCE580) for a wide variety of sealing and gluing applications in the automotive and construction industries. The 20V MAX* Adhesive Guns can be used with various adhesives including latex, silicone, polyurethane, flexible epoxy and more.

    The 20V MAX* Adhesive Gun is available in three canister sizes; 10oz/300ml (DCE560), 29oz (DCE570), or 300-600ml Sausage Tube (DCE580), which provides the professional with the ability to choose the format that suits their typical use best. Key features include Anti-Drip™ which briefly auto-retracts the plunging rod when the trigger is released. Also featuring a variable speed trigger and variable speed dial, each of the 20V MAX* Adhesive Guns provide finite adjustments in speed at which material is released. To limit user fatigue and ensure the proper amount of material is released, the 20V MAX* Adhesive Gun’s trigger can be locked at a specific setting during use.
    Other features of the 20V MAX* Adhesive Guns include tool-free change canister, a hang hook, and a bright LED work light at the foot of the tool. With a rubber over-mold and ergonomic grip, the tools are comfortable to use and easy to hold. Each 20V MAX* Adhesive Gun will be available kitted with one battery and charger or as a bare tool. The 10oz/300ml is kitted at $299 MSRP (DCE560D1) and bare at $199 MSRP (DCE560B). The 29oz is kitted at $299 MSRP (DCE570D1) and bare at $219 MSRP (DCE570B). Finally, the 300-600ml Sausage Tube is kitted at $299 MSRP (DCE580D1) and bare are $219 MSRP (DCE580B).
Accessories are also available, including clear 300ml/600ml sausage tubes (sold separately). Available where DEWALT products are sold in fall 2016, the 20V MAX* Adhesive Guns will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee. "
