Full release details at the call-out link, but some highlights.New extension: http://meta.schema.org
Terms "primarily designed to support the implementation of the Schema.org vocabulary itself."New extension: http://pending.schema.org
A "staging area for work-in-progress terms which have yet to be accepted into the core vocabulary."New extension: http://health-lifesci.schema.org
A "new home for our existing Medical and healthcare related terms."
*New document, "How we work": http://schema.org/docs/howwework.html*
A "document providing an overview of the project's approach to schema development, collaboration, versioning and change review." A treasure trove for those interested in, or have a vested interest in, the development of the vocabulary.
*New property: http://schema.org/disambiguatingDescription*
A sub property of description, "used to disambiguate from other, similar items."audience, brand, logo, isRelatedTo, isSimilarTo
These previously Product-specific specific properties can now also be applied to Service.

"An electronic file or document", with sub-types NoteDigitalDocument,
PresentationDigitalDocument, SpreadsheetDigitalDocument, TextDigitalDocument.
*New type: http://schema.org/ComputerLanguage*
With modifications to http://schema.org/Language
to stress it that it refers to natural languages, and with support for standard BCP 47 language codes via the alternateName property (for SEOs, this brings the functionality of language types and properties close to that provided by hreflang).
*New enumeration: http://schema.org/Monday*
And (surprise!) the rest of the days of the week as well, replacing the purl.org/goodrelations
URIs on which these are based - thanks +Alexandre Bertails
! Also, http://schema.org/specialOpeningHoursSpecification
has been added, which allows webmasters to override general opening hours
Not seeing the current version? I am, but +Dan Brickley
notes ""there seem to be some further issues with old versions of pages being cached. It was looking like this had resolved itself but I see
now that this isn't the case. At least the homepage and /docs/schemas.html seem to be intermittently showing old versions of those pages. You can force a fresher version by appending '/' to thedomain name e.g. http://schema.org////docs/schemas.html
but obviously this needs attention"" #schemaorg
