Incontrovertible proof that the new update releases today, 11/30, found in the 4J Twitter feed:
Look in the picture, you can clearly see an 11 and a 30 reversed within the wires! Everyone knows they always hide the release dates in the photos!

So that's today then...not likely, especially since they also posted the tutorial world that they are working on. I'd guess about 2 weeks from now
Until a date is given by 4J, all other dates are speculations.
