These changes were just announced by ETS about an hour ago, so stay tuned for more information. The changes will start in on August 1.

Basically:

Each reading passage will have ten questions, instead of 12-14. The number of reading passages will remain the same (3-4). It will take just 52-74 minutes to finish the reading section (instead of 60-80).

There will be 3-4 lectures in the listening section (instead of 4-6). The number of conversations will not change. The number of questions will not change. It will take 41 to 57 minutes to finish the listening section (instead of 60-90 minutes).

There will be one independent (instead of two) and three integrated speaking questions (instead of three). It will take 17 minutes to finish the speaking section. I don’t know which questions will be eliminated.

The whole test will take just 3 hours instead of 3.5 hours.

This was all just announced, and this is all I know for now.

Will report more as I learn it.
