There are a lot of small bits coming out on the new 6.5 or Revised Edition for 6th rulebook. I have collated a few of them here, with the help of Zion from Tabletop Wargaming.
Please remember that these are still rumors, and the one talking about percentages and prescience needs extra salt.
It very much looks like the first one fits in well with what we have been hearing, and that the Eldar vs IG will be apart of this release. This revised edition release makes a lot more sense, and one that I think most of us can live with much better than a completely new edition. Here is to hoping that its a great release!
You can also check out the earlier bits about 7th edition (Revised 6th) here.

Just wanted to throw in something my Memphis GW source clued me in on.
Apparently (as we all know) there is a "new" rulebook coming out, and it is a corrected/updated version of 6th (not being referred to as either 6.5 or 7th, but unofficially as "Revised 6th" at hq in Memphis), with escalation and strong added in the book, amongst other books/supps, d weapons, and some other stuff. 673 pages, $99.99. New cover. There will be new templates and starter box, plus other items. For GW, they want this to be the same big fanfare of a new (40k reawakening) release, new rules, for newcomers, but keep current players (happy?).
For those who have 6th, and the other books, there's going to be a faq pdf so you can use current books still, apparently. This will be good for another 3 to 4 years.

I was speaking with the owner of my FLGS today and he confirmed that his GW rep said that DV and the BRB have been discontinued; the rep went on to say that something is coming but wouldn't tell the owner what.

We have just been told that WFB style Army Percentage limitations are coming to 40k 7th. More as we get it.

My sister in law works in the printing department and has seen parts of the new rule book. She has limited gameplay experience but does know the rules from watching countless games. One thing she did notice is that "Prescience" is no longer the Primaris Power in Divination. It has move to number five and now cost two warp charges to cast.
