All Random URF is now up for testing on the LCU and the Legacy PBE client ! 
Note from the PBE sevice status page:
""AR URF" mode is now enabled for testing in both League Client Update and Legacy Client! However, League Client Update members will be unable to change their summoner spells due to a bug. This will be fixed shortly, hang tight!"

Notes

1) phroxz0n shared a full changelist for today's Fizz changes over on reddit.
As for the goal of the changes, he noted:
[1]"We would like to ship a change that is at least power neutral/slightly power up. It might not be there at this point and may have to delay a patch, but the idea is at least to move some power into the base kit off the ult."
 [2] "The fish will still zone them if they miss and knockup (and apply the damage and mark) to all those people. It just doens't have the pickup on it, so people can dash through it. 
I think it adds more gameplay value as people will be able to make a decision whether they can cross the dangerous zone or not. Also means we can add more power into the base kit accordingly."

2) ricklessabandon tweeted that he would soon pull the Blade of the Ruined King changes from this cycle:
"also, didn't get to put much time into botrk this dev cycle, so i'll be pulling those off of pbe next week

they'll be back in the 7.5 cycle"
3) ricklessabandon on Kindred change in today's update:
[1] "ah, btw, in today's pbe update there was a change for kindred in for testing -- removed 'raptor camp' as a wolf mark from her 0-2 mark tier"
[2] "would like to see if removing that camp as an early target helps them overall (as it's currently a costly camp to take early)"
[3] "yes, this iteration means that they'll 100% get rift scuttler as wolf's mark while they have less than 3 marks"
[4] "probably not an ideal long-term solution, but interested to hear if this makes life better for kindred and/or makes for better play"

4) Meddler noted XP changes expected in 7.4 and probably Fervor of Battle changes too.
