Looks like Gigiabyte is the first to release an AM3+ board:

It will support the new 32nm AM3+ CPU's and the entire AM3 lineup.
Newegg already has it available for retail sale.
The ASUS Crosshair IV Formula released a bios update to support the AM3+ CPU's.

Now if I can just get my hands on an AM3+ CPU, stay tuned...

This is what I found out at MSI there AM3 mainboard with a BIOS upgrade will be a AM3+ this is a quote.

"In addition to upgrading all BIOS on the existing AM3 mainboards supporting AMD AM3+ multi-core processors before shipping to correspond to the upcoming AMD AM3+ processors, MSI has post the BIOS of corresponding mainboards with support for the new AMD AM3+ processors for consumers to upgrade their MSI AM3 mainboards in order to meet their demands for system upgrade and experiencing the powerful performance of the next-generation AMD processors."
