More specifically, is there going to be a successor to the usually heavier 6.1 95s that so many people have used over the years (and are always available in 16x18 and 18x20).

I play tested the Wilson prototype of such a frame, but it hasn't been released with the rest of the frames. But, releases of the Wilson line are usually staggered, right?

TW-Europe has both the BLX Prostaff 6.1 95 and BLX 6.1 95 2012, the latter of which is the successor frame I'm talking about. Will that frame be released outside of Europe?

I figured the frame would be released for sure, but some comments I've read here and there suggest that it might not.

The ProStaff line and the new 2012 6.1 BLX refresh will be available worldwide.

If you can get the current 6.1 BLX where you live, you'll also be able to get the 2012 6.1 BLX referesh, the release of which does appear to be staggered.

Has anyone weighed to know if their Wilson BLX Pro Staff Six.One 95 actually is 11.5oz / 326.02g (strung)?

(sorry, my question might be stupid since TW says it's out out yet)

A distributor friend of mine said the 2012 BLX 6.1 95, 16x18 and 18x20 will ship somewhere around 2/17/2012, where as the Pro-Staff 95 will ship 1/22/2012.

Yes, it's on the Wilson website and I believe will be available in the next 3-4 weeks.
