Read somewhere that the new RDB's will come with a button style magazine release. anyone know if there is any truth to this ?
Was that an official statement, or just some forum chatter?

There was a prototype at shot show with a button release. It was located near the magwell though (not near your main hand/pistol grip like an AR) so it would definitely require offhand manipulation.

Never read anything official about it being anything other than a prototype though.

For what it is worth, in my limited play, I both intentionally and unintentionally tried to trip the mag release "by accident" and it never released. It was actually pretty stiff in my experience (a good thing really).

It's unconventional (unless you have Tavor experience) but I like the RDB mag release.

I hadn't heard about any plans for a button styled magazine release, and I strongly doubt that Kel-Tec would do both, but they will be shipping the sweet looking RDB-C for California and other places that don't like scary pistol grips. Apparently, without the pistol grip, the RDB-C won't require a bullet button for the mag release, at least this week, until Sacramento gets around to a few more infringements. Don't quote me on that. I try not to fill my head with California gun laws. I feel that putting such nonsense in my head would inevitably make me dumber.
