How often should I change the oil in my new car?

I will be getting a brand new car in December. With all my previous cars I have changed the oil and filter every six months (annual mileage 8K). Should I continue this practice or will an annual change be sufficient?
These days changing the oil every year or every 10,000 miles (whichever comes first) is generally sufficient to preserve the engine.
