It will not be release as part of 4.6. 5.0 might be release Aug 2013. See
http://redmine.gromacs.org/issues/949 for the preliminary planning.

g_angel and g_select is available. You can run them with "g_ana

Any computation which has a 1-1 mapping between the trajectory and the
output data doesn't require anything special. This should be true also
for MSD.
The need for extra computation which needs to happen after the per frame
computation is build in the concept. But only some functions (e.g.
averages, distances,  and histograms see
implemented so far. It should be very easy to add a AnalysisDataModule
which computes correlation  functions (and it is certainly planned).
