I think this depends very much on whose perspective you're looking at this situation from.
For some hard-core fans, these may be easy to separate the awful events surrounding Bobbi Kristina's end from trying to continue Whitney's legacy, but for other fans and for much of the general public, they are still very much intertwined. As such, this casts a shadow on Whitney and her legacy, which will take time to recover, if it ever does fully. Following Michael Jackson's death, there hasn't been any further family tragedy that might have tainted the release of any new material; sadly, with Whitney, there has. I would wager that if the Live album had been due to come out in early 2015 rather than late 2014, its release would have been cancelled after what happened to Bobbi Kristina.
If any future project is going to be a success, it has to cater to a wider audience than just the fans on this board - and this means being patient.

Record companies are in the business of making money, her estate could not even stop Clive or RCA/Sony or Arista I can't recall who she was signed with at the end of her life. Look at Michael Jackson and other artists who have died record companies don't wait for years to release unreleased material on a artist unless the artist is still alive. Which actually makes since because the artist more than likely will continue to make new music even if there are years in between. Whitney Houston did most of her studio work from 83-95 from then all we all know what happened from 2000-2012 you can count the number of albums she did on one hand. With the condition her voice was in no way did she record a lot of material. It is time to give the up the hopes and dreams. If there is something in the vault best believe it was not released for reasons obviously that we don't know. Maybe Whitney did not want them released or her record company didn't or both. We have not gotten any solid info on unreleased tracks except when they announced that they would re-released her earlier albums with bonus tracks which tells me there is not much unreleased material if they were releasing expanded versions of albums that already came out, which to a degree they already did releasing alternate versions of "I Look To You" and "Never Givin Up" two tracks that IMO should have never seen the light of day.
Hopefully I am wrong but I don't think I am.
There ARE some recorded tracks that are unreleased, I think a lot of people have posted solid evidence over the years.
But here's another issue, what about all those early live concerts from the early live tours? How many times have we seen footage from Whitney live concerts in news reports from the 80's and early 90's? Why don't they remaster those and release those on Itunes? Heck, even the Saratoga 1987 concert that included the DWAHIA video (and the IWDWS performance) should be released in full? What about the MLIYL tour? I'm positive that after a couple of years these concerts will sell enough to cover the "remastering" costs just based on random buyers and curiosity alone. They don't need to make a big release for these concerts. I think we are all tired of watching them recycle WHH and South Africa, don't you agree? These stunning early concerts or any other rare performances are the ones that will solidify Whitney's legacy even further, not a couple of unreleased tracks. I'm pretty sure if they released one of those first tour concerts featuring I Am Changing, the world will stop turning and everyone will watch in awe.

I think the main things we can look forward to would be:
- A duets album (hopefully with some new vocals from outtakes)
- A gospel album featuring 2 new songs (and hopefully some live gospel stuff like This Day from This is My Life documentary, Don't Cry, A Quiet Place, etc.)
- An album that features all the b-sides and different less known tracks (Look into Your Heart, Memories, Eternal Love, Higher Love, Moment of Truth, Take me into Your Heart, etc.)
- Live concerts (MLIYL tour and hopefully from the 80's and early 90's too)
- Documentaries that might include never before seen footage of Whitney behind the scenes, at home, in studio, etc.
- A biopic for the big screen
- The Hologram tour (if that's still happening)
There are many possibilities and things to look forwards to, but I think in terms of unreleased recorded songs, unfortunately there are barely any...
