Hello Adnan,

The guide is still in the works but it is still a few months away from
an initial draft.  This guide as well as other OWASP projects are
trying to adhere to a more common framework and numbering.  The
following is a roadmap that Matteo has outlined for v4 and we are
working towards it.  Thank you for the email and Matteo will send out
an update when things are further along.

This is the roadmap of v4:
- Create a new comprehensive list of all the possible vulnerabilities.
- Review all the control numbers to adhere to the OWASP Common numbering,
- Review all the sections in v3,
- Create a more readable guide, eliminating some sections that are not
really useful,
- Insert new testing techniques: HTTP Verb tampering, HTTP Parameter
Pollutions, etc.,
- Rationalize some sections as Session Management Testing,
- Debate if create a new section: Client side security and Firefox
extensions testing.
