The headline is: Alfabet grows - with w. The swedish alfabet no longer 
has 28 letters, but 29. This means for example that a great amount of 
textbooks has to be rewritten.

The gist of the story is that the Swedish Academy made v and w 
distinct in their vocabulary at 2006.

According the 
separation of v and w has been official since 2006.
