Get the 35L now and use it until a new one comes out.
Even if they announced tomorrow (which Canon won't), the new lens will not be available for a very long time.
If and when the new one comes out you can see if it's worth the upgrade and sell the current one, which won't lose much value even if the new one is better. The cost of the new one will be quite a bit higher, if past upgrades are any indication. This will keep the value of the outgoing version high.
Of course all of this is speculation, but I think that they're all logical speculations.
I just got the 50f1.2 during the Canon refurb 15% sale for under $1100, but I'll probably return it. From early shooting, it's not the improvement I was looking for over the 50f1.4. The 85f1.2 looks like it's worth the extra cash, even though I like the "normal" focal length a bit more.
