Wizards of the Coast has announced that, staring with the 2009 season, all Pro Tour events will be a split format – one half will be constructed and the other half will be limited (draft).  The link features an interview with the head of Magic R&D, Aaron Forsythe, who shares his insights on the change (particularly interesting was how much the viewing of related video and articles played into the decision).  This could be a huge change in the way Magic is played at a competitive level.  Don’t think so?  Take a look at the top 8 finishers for the last few years – there is virtually no overlap in the names on limited events and the names on constructed events (in fact, in 2008 and 2007 there was zero overlap in the two lists).
