Proposed changes to DSM are up for perusal at www.dsm5.org . No surprises in the GID section, really...this is only the draft.
The new revision will combine a lot of current disorders, eliminate a few, and narrow the specifications on a lot of them - means the final version will be easier to diagnose from, insurance will most probably pay for less, and it will be lighter to lug around!

I'm leery of it, as it was TOO easy to read the GID section and it appears to be to "our" benefit on many fronts. I'm going in for a second read...
