In October 2007, Janie gave an interview for Los Angeles times.
Among other things she said this:

" Janie Hendrix said there is enough material to keep a steady stream of “exciting projects” for another decade. She’s circled spring of 2008 for the release of a project built around Jimi’s February 1969 performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The concert was filmed for a theatrical feature that never materialized, but the project also has footage shot by a crew that followed the star for “about a month.”

“We have Jimi as he hasn’t been seen before, and not an actor playing Jimi. This is him as he was, with his guard down and on the road,” Janie Hendrix said. “We feel fabulous about this project. You see him flying coach, going into hotels – and it’s him checking himself in, he’s carrying his own bag, there’s no people handling it for him – you see people asking him for autographs. His charm comes across, the pressure he’s under and just his life in moments backstage.”

She said there will be a theatrical release as well as a DVD and pay-per-view release for the project.

“It will be huge for us, and it will be huge for Jimi and his legacy,” she said. “The music is alive and well, and we want to make sure the memory of the real Jimi is alive and well also."

Does anbody have any new information about this project and why it isn't released?

Not really new, but still couple of months (march 2008) after your news (october 2007):

"... It seemed that October 2008 would see the release but latest news (March 2008) was that the film was still in the cutting room, so that might push things on to 2009 unfortunately and possibly February, in order to tie in with the 40th anniversary of the performance."
