Is there anything new in the player PDF besides the factions?

The deities are new to the document.

The Noble background has been added, as well as Appendix B "Gods of the Multiverse" (featuring Forgotten Realms deities), and Appendix C "The Five Factions" (also from the Forgotten Realms, used especially with organized play).

Apparently people were asking WotC the same thing about what has changed with the updated Basic rules and they listened.

The page with the rules downloads now has a "Change Log" section. It cites:
- Added acid splash, counterspell, disguise self, poison spray, shatter, and wall of fire spells.
- Added noble background.
- Added appendix containing the Forgotten Realms deities.
- Added appendix containing descriptions of the five factions that feature in the D&D Adventurers League.
- Legal text added to the footer to allow reproduction for personal purposes.
I missed the additional spells.
