Oh, do I hear people groaning over that possibility.

Microsoft won't be delivering a new Start Menu for Windows 8 with its coming Windows 8.1 Update 2, after all.

That recent change in plans comes courtesy of a couple of my sources who've had good track records on Windows information.

Up until recently, Microsoft was hoping to make a new "Mini" Start Menu part of a second update to Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 Update 2 was -- and still is, last I heard -- slated to arrive in August of this year.

Microsoft's operating systems group has decided to hold off on delivering a Microsoft-developed Start Menu until Threshold, the next "major" release of Windows.Report: Windows 8 Start Menu Delayed Until 2015 [zdnet.com]

Bummer. I preferred the earlier speculation deadline [webmasterworld.com]. It won't affect me as I don't really use those menus much. If it were a part of my daily use I might opt for one of those Start Menu restorers that seem to be popular.
