Well, not new insights, but at least new paper and a new face:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

http://arxiv.org/abs/1204.0328 Particle Physics from Almost Commutative Spacetimes by Koen van den Dungen, Walter D. van Suijlekom

the veteran in the team is van Suijlekom and it seems that he is pushing forward with some strength. Recent papers show interest for the renormalization process in NCG and http://arxiv.org/abs/1003.3788 was the first new try towards SUSY.

I notice also that the long struggle of Connes and Chamseddine to understand the relationship between the SM algebra and the Pati Salam algebra has at least got some other groups involved. For instance http://arxiv.org/abs/1112.3622 do mention both algebras in the abstract.

Connes and Chamseddine pursue the uniqueness of Pati Salam in a series of papers. It appears as theorem III.1 of http://arxiv.org/abs/0706.3690 and then it is mentioned again in section 5 of http://arxiv.org/pdf/1008.3980v1.pdf ( where they make an attempt to understand how to trade orientability by chirality) and in graphical form in figure 2 of http://arxiv.org/pdf/1008.0985v1.pdf
