The following splits have been added:
  • Bornean Swiftlet Collocalia dodgei - split from Cave Swiftlet Collocalia linchi
  • Sumatran Babbler Pellorneum buettikoferi - split from Buff-breasted Babbler P. tickelli
  • Streak-throated Fulvetta Alcippe cinereiceps - split into Grey-hooded Fulvetta A. cinereiceps, Streak-throated Fulvetta (Manipur Fulvetta) A. manipurensis and Taiwan Fulvetta A. formosana
