Apple released a press announcement last month saying they were delaying it until November.

"As soon as..."

So basically they are saying it'll either come out tomorrow, or if not, then some other day. haha Great wording.

Some people seem to be under the assumption these delays would have never happened under Steve.
These people seem to have a very lousy memory.
Do you forget the first version of OS X, and OS X Leopard?
Releasing unfinished software is never a sensible idea; and I'd think this is empathised even more so by the maps debacle.
Sometimes deadlines aren't met, and as frustrating as that is it doesn't mean you should neglect the experience of the product.
Customers were frustrated with the delay of Leopard but I remember the level of excitement when it was released due to the pleasurable experience.
I'd rather wait and be blown away than impatient and experience a buggy piece of crap. As the saying goes "you can't rush art"
Lets hope our patience pays off tomorrow.

A few things I hope does not break...

Bad feeling about this... I am hoping they don't break the api for other apps to access playlists, like Syncmate and Plex. That would be bad for me

Remember Eddy, label it 'BETA' so if it is compromised quality that makes the round of the blogs and rumor sites, you won't have to fire yourself!

The author of the WSJ article tweeted this:

New iTunes coming Thurs + plus Apple power shift and how Eddy Cue is grabbing more of it.

It's just awkward wording in the article.

hopefully it's not even more bloated.

for how clean and crisp they can make iOS, why the heck is iTunes such a sloppy piece of software?

The current iTunes is ugly and archaic, barely changed for many years


This refresh is sorely welcome

One reason has to be with code portability (for Windows) and a lot of PPC legacy. Just a guess.

I'm surprised more people aren't talking about the Spotify/Pandora like music streaming that this version MAY have. I'm looking forward to this the most. Being able to put in a few artists that I like, make a station, and just stream music all day while at work. Hopefully this won't be excessive in cost.

yeah, probably right.

wifi sync also slows down the software

Probably because there is no evidence whatsoever that it actually exists. A feature like this would almost certainly warrant a presentation - none has happened nor has been rumored.

It was just a wild rumor and nothing more.

I'm looking forward to Ping being removed and whatever little enhancing Apple does, but iTunes updates are notorious for mostly updating the system requirements. I'm going to be upset if this doesn't work in Snow Leopard.
