Saw this at the Takano Athletics blog (http://www.takanoathletics.com/blog/?p=1110) and thought it was worth posting here.

At the recent meeting of the International Weightlifting Federation’s Scientific and Research Committee, Lyn Jones proposed changes for the upper bodyweight classes of both the men’s and women’s categories. The proposal calls for changing the following women’s bodyweight class:

58 kg to 59 kg

63 kg to 66 kg

69 kg to 74 kg

75 kg to 83 kg

+75 kg to +83 kg

The proposal also calls for changing the following men’s bodyweight classes:

85 kg to 86 kg

94 kg to 96 kg

105 kg to 107 kg

+105 kg to +107 kg

This means that women's classes will increase in Kgs by 5.6.7.8.9. and men's by 6.7.8.9.10.11.
Probably fairer and cleverer.
