Current article count is 39665:
and the Latin Wikipedia reached 39000 just 23 days ago, so that gives a rate of just under 30 new articles a day. Add to that the excitement of reaching the 40000 milestone and the rate should pick up a bit, so it should surpass 40000 in about a week. There's always a message on the Taberna whenever they pass another 1000 articles so it's likely that there will be some sort of celebration (i.e. a special Wiki.png symbol on the top left to mark the occasion) when it happens.
By that time it will be June, and it's not yet certain what the article of the month will be. This month's article has been De vita Caesarum.
