http://www.bjjee.com/articles/ibjjf-rules-update-no-more-advantages-in-5050-guard-video-replay-women-to-wear-rashguard/

Of the ones I see these two stand out as good rules
5.8.4 – No advantages will be awarded for sweeps that start and end in a 50/50 guard
situation.
6.4.23 – In the white belt division, it is forbidden for an athlete to jump into closed guard while
their opponent is standing. When this movember occurs, the referee will stop the match and
restart with both athlete’s standing at the center of the mat.

I kinda wince at the whole advantage-system as is, so anything that downplays that is a step up in my books. The no guard-jumping thing is pretty interesting, and my only guess would be that it's to prevent overly spazzy white belts from slamming themselves, but who knows. Another rule from that article I found interesting was the one about being specifically prohibited from landing your opponent on their head/neck when performing suplexes, since I kinda thought that already applied to all throws and takedowns.

New point at item 8.3.8:
● It is also allowed for the use of a head covering in addition to a shirt, as described in
the female uniform section. The head covering must be made of elastic material, must
be fully black in color and cover the neck, ears and hair, like a wetsuit headpiece.
Only the face must remain fully visible.

I disagree.

Seems like this could all be profitably simplified into a general "no head spiking" rule rather than continually writing in new corner cases. As it stands, for example, I can head spike a guy from a double, but not from a bodylock...

Huh, I actually didn't know that, I thought "no spiking" was standard practice for just about all grappling rulesets. Seems like kind of a huge oversight for an organization so seemingly focused on security (no knee reaping, etc.). I guess they don't want people getting salty if they get drop-seoi'd and don't think to tuck their chin, but that's still kind of goofy.

I have a vision of better future

Remember the line "sweep the leg" from karate kid

Imagine the line would be instead of "scoot the butt"

I dare you motherfuckers

I thought they were allowing Ninjas to wear full gear

wow i read a lot more into that comment than you meant (i was thinking that you were saying that for hijab wearing competitors the face *should* be covered.)

i'm glad you weren't claiming that muslim women are automatically 2-baggers (one bag over her head so you can't see her face, and the other on your head in case hers falls off.)

What's the problem, provided they don't confer an advantage or present a danger to either competitor?

Something something terrists destroying muh American freedoms.

Also, did the IBJJF just ban guard-pulling at white belt level? Because that is fucking awesome.

No, I believe they only banned jumping guard. You can still pull someone down to the mat into your guard.
