Draft version now available.

Instrument Procedures Handbook 2015 (http://www.faa.gov/aircraft/draft_docs/media/afs/FAA-H-8083-16A.pdf)

"There are updates to sections covering sector and altitude references used throughout the guide, as well as vertical descent angles, visual descent points and GLS approaches, along with their associated minimums. Another chapter highlights alerting functions germane to the performance-based navigation concept and associated systems. In addition, there are changes to RNP approach naming convention issues and updates focused directly on Rnav and GPS approach procedures.

The handbook also supplements instrument flying for pilots with safety information on runway incursions, land and hold short operations, controlled flight into terrain and a variety of human factors issues."

They had better fix the PDF bookmarks!

Otherwise, it looks to be very informative.
