Hi, I''m just learning DirectX and I noticed that there haven''t been any new articles on DirectDraw since 2002. I was wondering if there have been any major changes to DirectDraw since DirectX 7? Is there such thing as a DirectDraw 9, or does everybody still use the same DirectDraw 7 code?

As far as I know development on the DirectDraw API ended at DirectX 7. However, thanks to the COM interfaces you can use the DirectDraw 7 API according to the DirectDraw 7 API and docs.
