Can someone please explain why the tau are getting their new codex before eldar,dark eldar, and the orcs?

GW cannot even claim it is to do with popularity.

I believe the short answer is "no." Nor did most people want to justify the Tau and the Necrons getting codices before Sisters of Battle, or why the Dark Eldar appeared at all when they did. Frankly, the most touted reasons are that the Tau are simply the easiest to revamp, and the Eldar/Orks are going to get a thorough looking over, "don't you worry." Which is probably prejudicing a lot of people to find the bad spots in the new Ork/Eldar stuff as soon as they roll around to it, people being people.
