Where is the actual Climate Change Impact Report?

I eagerly awaited the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Working Group II Contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2007: Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability, Summary for Policymakers, but was sorely disappointed that only a "Summary for Policymakers" was issued, not the actual report. The chapters outline for the report is also available, but no sign of an actual, detailed report. I presume that the full, detailed report will be issued after the final section is completed in November, but it disturbs me greatly that a "summary for policymakers" would be negotiated and issued long before the full report is finalized.
