So when will Phoenix Viewer and/or Firestorm Viewer get Mesh support for Second Life? Have LL even released the code yet for mesh or are they not going to do that and just for everyone to use Viewer 3? Sorry if this question has been asked already.

The viewer's code is/was available during the past months - of course most third party developers decided to wait until the 'final' mesh-code is ready.
Anyway - since mesh-attachments will very often require an alpha layer, I really hope (some) TPVs get finally the option for multiple alphas. This code is around for a year, but still not all viewer have multi-alphas.
At all, I think nearly all TPVs will implement mesh sooner or later. Chat-only-viewers maybe not :-).

It will be ready when its ready. The developpers are working their ass off to make it work and to get it right, i prefer to wait than to have a viewer full of bugs

Kirsten's viewer is currently the only TPV that supports mesh. It has been more stable than the LL viewer from my side. You can get it here: http://www.kirstensviewer.com/
Im sure the other TPVs will make the jump.

According to the devs, Phoenix will not. Phoenix development will be ending at some point in the not too distant future.
Firestorm, however, will support Mesh soon.

Well, according to the postings at Phoenix's own website, they are still commited to maintaining and releasing updates to the phoenix viewer. If the other v1 style TPVs integrate mesh (and publish the patch diffs, hopefully), then integrating it into Phoenix will be simple enough they would be foolish not to......and I suspect they will integrate such patches once they are available.
Firestorm, since it is based off the SnowStorm code, will include mesh as soon as the Phoenix/Firestorm team gets caught up on the SnowStorm merges. Since they're still on 2.6, this may be a month or three......
