    You can download the update from androidpolice site. I did since it wasn't pushed to my phone.

    Supposedly Gingerbread is in Phase 2 testing, part of the update will stop all of the current methods of rooting your phone. If true, better root before it's released if you intend to.

    It is strange they would do that since they have officially stated they will no longer lock down any of their phones. And they are beginning to unlock some of those that are locked.

    That's really two different things though. Stopping the current methods of rooting is really a security fix. Yes, it can be used for rooting but for more malicious purposes as well. Doesn't mean they won't unlock the boot loader.

    They will always find a way to root a build where they patch certain security flaws new ones open up or we notice a new security crack

    Well that's a given, just a delay tactic really.
