edit: and compared to 2013's, the ankle strap has changed again, to a react strap(which just has less padding than the super strap)
Everything I can see on the pix looks like the 2010-2011 version - highbacks, straps, color scheme, etc.
In that case there is another difference to the 2011-2012 (in addition to the ones you mentioned): A new baseplate - which was pretty significant, so far from "essentially the same".
