Hi,
Just saw this reported on http://www.chessdom.com

Monthly FIDE rating list starting July 2012
Rating floor lowered to 1000 ELO
The FIDE Presidential Board in Al Ain decided to implement the recommendation of the Qualification Chairman and Rating Administrator to lower the rating floor to 1000 and produce the rating list on a monthly basis.

It was agreed that this should come into effect from July 1st 2012. With that decision the FIDE ratings are moving a step closer to the live top lists supported by Dambi at http://chess.liverating.org/ and GM Naiditsch at http://chess-evolution.com.

I couldn't find anything from a quick look at the FIDE website to confirm this.
