The Wall Street Journal now reports that the completely redesigned iTunes will finally debut tomorrow, November 29. According to the report, it was delayed due to engineering issues.
From the WSJ report:
This week, Mr. Cue faces a test of how well Apple can keep up in online services with the launch of a new desktop version of iTunes, which is expected as soon as Thursday. The new iTunes has been delayed a month by engineering issues that required parts to be rebuilt, according to people who have seen it.
Apple had given us a preview of the completely redesigned iTunes 11 at the iPhone 5 media event in September and was expected to be released in October.
