You can stop holding your breath. The 2006 United States Code has been completed. It is up-to-date through the end of 2006. What is nice about it is that you can now download PDF copies of individual sections of the U.S. Code from the Government Printing Office website.
Of course, if you don't need a PDF of the official version of the U.S. Code, the Legal Information Institute still provides a good free version that is more up-to-date.
