T&T is re-naming the "Yassa Massa" spell found in editions 1-5 to "Obey Me!" As of this writing, the 1st and 5th edition PDFS are being worked on, with more to come. Personally, I'm glad they did this. I'm also glad they went with "Obey Me!" instead of "Spirit Mastery", which just sounds too... serious for my taste.

Basically, his comment says the name of that spell is the only thing he’s changing in the updated file available on drivethru.com. In a later comment on the same post he says he just did the same to the fourth edition PDF as well. Not much other news there, I’m afraid.

I've received notice of the new versions from DriveThruRPG, but haven't heard any more than that.
Also interested to hear what else may be happening, if anything.
Steve/FBI and KSA keep their cards pretty close to their chests, but here's what has come to light in the past month or two. I'll post more as I learn of them.
-It seems the v5.5 rewrite is the next rules-based project coming down the pipeline. It'll have a title like Whispers of the Past IIRC.
-Various solos are being upgraded to dT&T rules. The DeLuxe in the titles refers to the dT&T rules, though there likely will be additional content added to new releases of older titles.
-Thessaly (aka devadasi ) is planning a big M!M! supplement. While FBI has expressed some interest in publishing, she has not decided which route to market she'll take. Considering her long-running affiliation with T&T (and, on a personal note, her skills as a DM), one may well consider this at least a semi-official product.
-KSA is openly soliciting, and publishing under a non-FBI imprint, fan works for dT&T (though one may well assume, since it's a non-FBI imprint, works for any edition may be considered).
-Steve/FBI has hinted around about other events soon TBA but that is the most concrete news extant in the hobby.

Ah, my thanks, Piper, that helps.
I took a look around last night, focusing on Twitter as a start, but after a 14 hour workday my Google-Fu SR failed to meet the necessary threshold. My results can be summed up as, "These are not the feeds you are looking for."
As a side note, coming from one who has literally no social media accounts, would anyone be wiling to paste links to the various accounts they know of supporting T&T? It'll help those of us with less familiarity as well as new comers to our little niche.

I'll have the deep-fried battered pixie with balrog dipping sauce and a Hobgoblin ale.
Hi all. YES we did rename the spellname of "Y**** M****" to "Obey ME!" and then a few days later Ken asked me to add a short statement from him in regards to the change at the front of the 1st, 4th and 5th editions of T&T. No other changes have been made or are planned to be made to those books. So this is not part of some great plan to overhall the old books and make them politically correct. We changed that spell name as it really was offensive - end of story.

Thanks, Steve. T&T is a great game, and I, for one, appreciate the way this has been handled. Not an hour ago, I purchased the MSPE hardcover from your Amazon store (I've had my eye on it for a while even though I own the softcover, as well as the entire MSPE line - plus multiple copies of T&T 5/5.5 and various adventures), so know that this is coming from a fan as well as a loyal customer.
