Is the V8 AMG engine used in the SLK55 being phased out?

I read somewhere on the Internet that a newer V8 AMG engine was being introduced across the Mercedes lines that use AMGV8s. Has anyone heard anything about this? What's better about the new engine?

It's new, and it's from AMG. It has to be even better, no? After what we saw from the 6.2L in all the 63 AMG cars...
