The IJF bans more things
This is becoming a regular thing. New year and time for the IJF to ban more stuff because we're all doing judo WRONG. I didn't really pay attention until I restarted judo but they seem to be banning more stuff more often
This link has all the new rules written down (but I couldn't be fucked to read it) http://lovejudo.files.wordpress.com/.../new-rules.pdf
Here's a video of all the cool stuff you can no longer do.
I'm currently on a study hiatus but when it's over I don't think I'll be going back to judo.

this makes me very angry."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art. You don't truly love your children unless you allow them to get punched in the face." - chi-conspiricy
"When I was a little boy, I had a sailor suit, but it didn't mean I was in the Navy." - Mtripp on the subject of a 5 year old karate black belt
"Without actual qualifications to be a Zen teacher, your instructor is just another roundeye raping Asian culture for a buck." - Errant108
"Seriously, who gives a **** what you or Errant think? You're Asian males, everyone just ignores you, unless you're in a krotty movie." - new2bjj

I find the more I read about banned techniques the more I see opportunities for them in randori.
TBH ditching judo has as much if not more do with scheduling. My local club has rec classes monday and friday nights. If I want to train more than twice a week I can jump into the shark tank or join another club and end up paying mma levels of money.

Isn't this the stuff they banned last year on a trial basis? (two handed grip breaks etc)
I think it is stupid. Thankfully my coach trains people for Judo, wrestling, Sambo, Japanese Ju Jitsu and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Yesterday he yelled "Sambo rules!" during randori and the BJJ guy I was working with chain single legged me. But it was lots of fun.

Old news, and most of those changes are for the better. Going back to the older standard for ippon is welcome news IMO- no more slow-roll drop seionage or buit-to-shoulder kouchigari, those are max waza-ari. Continuing the trend to more ne-waza by letting it go put of bounds also good, no more weenie escapes from osaekomi by dragging tori out. I don't care about double-handed breaks, extended grip wars bore me and are negative judo anyways. Leniency for juniors on leg grabs is good (first one's a shido). Speaking of penalties, love the changes making it hard to win on penalties - so long as you have more points than the other guy, shido doesn't matter.
Don't care for the new two on one grip rule (have to attack as soon as the grip is established).
