Has anything changed in HTML5 since 2011?

Thanks for the great videos. Since they are nearly four years old, are there any changes I should be aware of before I get deeper into upgrading my HTML knowledge to HTML5?

Most changes since 2011 have been to make it more mobile friendly and to sort of weed out javascript.

There is a draggable range type for input, there is a search type for input (again mostly for mobile. It changes the enter button to search on phones), and HTML5 supports progress bar inputs.

I'm not sure if these were out as early as 2011, but HTML5(.0?) seriously was completed in October, 2014. That's when they officially released browser recommendations. They are now working on HTML 5.1. So I figure there were some major changes since then, but most are just to simplify. There aren't a whole lot crazy out of the blue features.

Most was to just weed out javascript in some areas and not have to use div's for everything (like body, header, article, footer, etc).

Thanks, Jay. I guess I should clarify my question. I know there are big changes from HTML to HTML5. I just wanted to know if HTML5 has had any changes since 2011 when these videos were made.
