The TPP deal is done but why hasn't the full text been released yet?

Last month an agreement for The Transpacific Partnership was finalized, among the many criticisms of the TPP was lack of transparency In the run up to Fast Track advocates and many members of congress including Bernie Sanders, Keith Ellison, Elizabeth Warren and others demanded the Obama Administration release the text of the deal to the public. After the Fast Track bill was passed by congress; giving President Obama the ability to negotiate the deal with out congressional oversight; Obama promised that the text would be released once the agreement was finalized. The deal is done and yet we still only know details of the agreement thanks to leaks and whistle-blowers.
