Any XL2 owners have any news on the SDK for the XL2 and what it does?

You don't get the SDK with the camera or something. You will have
to order it and sign for it as well. I don't think it is available yet.

You have to apply to Canon to be a software developer. If approved, they'll forward you a link to download the SDK.

It will be on the Canon's site when it is available. The support page is blank as of now.

I think you have to fill out an application to be considered for the SDK. You have to sign a form or an NDA or whatever. It isn't available to just anybody; it's not shareware. They're going to control who gets it and who doesn't, at least that was my understanding.

Okay, but the question is how to apply then. I'd like to take a look
myself and I am a professional programmer. So that should be
enough I hope.

Based upon the digital cameras SDK application, you'll be asked what type of program(s) you will develop. They don't ask too many specifics, but it is intended only for those that will actually develop software for the camera, not just the curious.

Let's hope they tell us what it can do before asking us right?! ;)

No, Canon does not tell anyone what the SDK can do. Development of software is up to the developer. The SDK just facilitates your task. If it was easy, everyone would do it.

I don't have the first clue as to how you'd actually apply for it. Call their marketing dept. I guess, and ask for the product manager.

There will be an online application when the SDK is ready (at least that's the way it works for the dSLR's). Robert Knecht Schmidt has an SDK for the cameras.
