Looks like again a lot of us are receiving responses thats a sign that there has been some changes and a lot of work is happening. To our surprise we too received an email today
not sure what the decision is but just relieved that we have heard from them. My husband will collect his passport may be tomorrow or day after. After receiving a clarity that his passport is ready for collection. Email received is as below:-

My timeline: applied on 31st august 2017 along with bio metric on the same day
14 sep not straightforward mail. I followed up at least 3 times after 15 days each. Earlier this month after reading on this forum i contacted Solvit; solvit responded immediately. Last tuesday Solvit sent me an email stating that they have escalated my case to UK Solvit. I am certain that Solvit has intervened and hence the response to our application. I will update you all on the outcome. But for now all the best to all who are waiting. I am sure you will have your families before christmas. I received this email from UK Visa and Immigration - south and south east asia region is this something new?
