Do you mean IPv6?

Because I'm not aware of any current drafts for IPv7.

But it was changed to TP/IX

Since IPv6 solves the IP address shortage for the foreseeable future (3.4 x 10^39 comes to mind... that's 3,400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 addresses... or enough for 7 billion people to each have 485 octillion IP addresses for their own use), I doubt we'll be seeing IPv7 in widespread general use any time soon.
