I thought that it was either built in and that we just had to wait for Jaguar, or that it was going to be a part of the 3.0.1 (or whatever we're at now) upgrade, but I still haven't heard anything about it actually working yet.
Imagine it does get released at MacWorld SF in early January... imagine thousands of iBook/PowerBook-toting Maclots running around a convention center with wireless networking all over the place and probably terabytes of mp3s in all their iTunes libraries, all wirelessly sharing with one another via Rendezvous, automatically, just as soon as they install the new iTunes.
He did say it would be coming "early next year" but he did not demo a working version of rendezvous-enabled iTunes, he just appeared to.</strong><hr></blockquote>
I don't know what you would classify as a working version. But they did demo a Rendevous enabled version of iTunes. Phil opened his powerbook, Steve saw his library, played some songs, phil closed his powerbook, repeat, whoa. Maybe you should go back and watch the keynote. It's around the 32 minute mark.

It will be interesting to see how they implement this feature. If they allow you to actually copy songs from your a Rendevous library to your own they could cause quite a stir, because of the potential for pirating, especially at Macworlds. I wonder if they will allow you to password protect your library so that it isn't open to everyone to see.
If they do allow copying that would be great. It would make manageing MP3s between my iBook and PowerMac that much easier.
