Is there a 2017 Outback coming for Australia?

Has anyone heard if there is a 2017 model Outback for Australia with any changes, or will next year just be the continuation of what we have now in 2016?

I have a 2002 Limited so I'm considering an update.

Thanks.

Well here it is in late January and it seems the answer still isn't clear. The dealer says: "The 2017 model is due out in the coming weeks but won’t be different to the 2016 model as far I know. "

Even so it probably makes sense to wait for the 2017MY at this point, right? For resale - it's sort of "1 year younger" down the track... right?

Thanks hksbrian, I got very similar info from Subaru Australia via a query to them on Facebook.
The message I got is below:
------------
"Currently we are expecting the MY17 Outback to arrive in February this year, with no known specification changes, though we do believe the MY17 Outback and Liberty will be available in a new colour (we haven't been advised of this colour yet).
Subaru Australia, after further Australian testing, will be releasing specifications and brochures for the MY17 Outback shortly."
------------

It's confusing how they say there will be no changes, but that the documentation will be released once they have "completed Australian specifications". It's almost a contradiction...

My diesel premium '17 cvt will be arriving in late March according to my dealer
