Not sure that much has really changed. ACI 318 has pretty much always been on a three cycle as far back as I can remember. So has the MSJC (aka the "masonry code"). AISC has typically been more than three years, but not necessarily on a "fixed" schedule. Same for the NDS (wood code). The most of the "model" codes have been on 3 year cycles for a while. I remember the BOCA being on a three year cycle. Don't really recall what the UBC did. The IBC has been 3 years from the beginning. In the end, what really matters is what the jurisdictions that you work in adopt. And that is all over the place...like it has been for a while. A few will go "latest and greatest" right away, while many other tend to wait awhile.
