Does anyone have any information on what was changed in the 2010 revisions and how it will affect US mariners?

Note that the above is for the amendments to the STCW, it does not describe how the United States will implement these amendments. See:
Has anyone heard any updates on when the USCG Final Rule will be out including the Manila Amendments?
Or separate rule on STCW B-V/f DPO endorsements?
Or any other countries issueing B-V/f endorsements yet? I haven’t seen any.
