ITIL v3 Update have been made aware of the following updates to ITIL v3.
Firstly we'd like to make it clear that this is not ITIL v4................!!
The ITIL version 3 update project is currently underway with updates to the five core books (Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition, Service Operation and Continual Service Improvement), an Introductory book and a Glossary are planned for the future, but there are no dates at this stage.
There will be updates to most of the other ITIL books that are based on the five core books, for example Key Element Guides, Foundation Pocket guide. The Lifecycle approach will remain the same, the aim is not to amend anything that will have a negative effect on, or invalidate any work that companies (tool providers, organizations that have used it on implementation projects etc) has done to date.  
The Service Strategy book will have more changes than any other of the core books with redrawing and clarification of many diagrams that have confused those reading the Service Strategy book and some restructuring around the processes.  
The official publication date is sometime within the first quarter in 2011 although the project is working towards a release date of December 2010.
