Instead, the logo will be -wait for it- a window. It will also be a single color, instead of the classic 4 color pattern that has also been used since 1990. The logo will be a light to mid dark, in perspective, so it appears the windows are closer to you on the right side. Overall, the logo takes hints from more modern graphic design techniques.
