I noticed it on the GMT newsfeed 4/19/2014 (that's 19th of April for us in the rest of the world) that a Living Rules update was posted for Virgin Queen.

Any idea what if anything was changed?

As I posted on Consimworld, I believe this was posted in error by GMT. The files they link to are the as-published Rules and Scenario Book.

Compare them to the January 2013 Living Rules and Scenario Books that Russ Hewson conveniently stitched together into one file: Combined VQ Rules

Notice how all the blue clarifying text in the latter is missing in the files on the GMT site. Another possibility is that there really is another Living Rules update and the wrong files were posted!

I haven't changed anything. It indeed looks like an error on their part.

I noticed they added rules for a modular board, worker placement variant and a deck building element, otherwise it seemed the same.

I just noticed "11.2 Any action resulting in tears or name-calling must immediately be retracted. Exception: if opponent started it."

This will be the long-awaited variant, Magic, the Virgin Squad Leader and Meeple Queen.

Nope. Just a restoration of the files that were supposed to be there--the January 2013 Living Rules and Scenario Book.
