In direct answer to your question, Stephen Hawking has tightened the understanding of what happens at the event horizon. He has made earlier theory more rigorous, mathematically.
So, yes, a refinement and a reversal of his original opinion that information is lost.

Thanks, that's what I thought it probably had to be. Although, didn't Hawking already concede back in 2004 that information isn't lost? (The famous bet he made to the contrary finally being recanted?)
Peace.

I can actually wrap my small head around his view this time. To the naysayers to Mr. Hawkings credibility...he has always based his findings on mathematical theorem.
The one constant we have across light years of space in the billions...is math. Therefore.....
