4.0.1: New Flexible Raid Lockout System: "A while ago, Blizzard announced that they would be changing the way raid lockouts work so players would no longer be required to raid the same content multiple times a week to increase progression.

At launch, it will only be available for Icecrown Citadel and The Ruby Sanctum In these dungeons, you will only have to kill each boss once on any difficulty level to count toward a completion of the instance. For example, you could kill the first 3 bosses in Icecrown one night on 10-player and then the next night get 25 people together and kill Deathbringer Saurfang and the rest of the bosses.

You can check out the full announcement and some more examples by Bashiok after the break.
