This is excellent news. Finally the A380 is starting to get some momentum back.

I don't know if momentum is the right word (yet), but it is definitely a positive for the program. Hopefully these components are complete, and not intended to be "rigged" during final assembly (as I believe some previous A380s were, and the first few 787s will be).

I think May was the last one, so there's been a 3 or 4 month gap

According to the following thread, the last convoy was the first week in April: A380 Production Problems? (by WingedMigrator May 21 2006 in Civil Aviation)#ID2783103
