    The change discussed here happened to the PMBOK Guide, but back in 2013 - it was a change included in the transition from 4th to 5th edition.
    The document referred to here, the Exam Content Outline (link here) was updated in 2015, to align with the 5th edition of the PMBOK Guide.

    You can also find the Exam Content Outline linked to the PMP exam application page. It is a great reference document; it lists the tasks a PM generally performs throughout the project, broken down by process group.

    The change was the transition from capturing best practices at the end of the project (Closing process group) to throughout the life of the project.
    You can see these as specific outputs - Organizational Process Asset (OPA) updates. Each knowledge area has a process that converts data to information (Control process group), and when that occurs, you'll find these.
