I have this app on my iPad called exoplanets, which updates with the latest list of planets discovered by Kepler. Today it updated and i was surprised to see the lastest list. It has nearly half a dozen of planets in the list most of them comparable to earths size and gravity and inside the habitable zone of the star it orbits. I was so excited to see so many, so i did a quick google check to double check on them but no other info is yet available on the net. So i will list the planets here for all:

Kepler 49b/c 1.06 times earth gravity

Kepler 51b/c 1.12 times earth gravity

Kepler 52b/c 1.05 times earth gravity

Kepler 53c 1.07 times earth gravity

Kepler 54b/c 1.05 times earth gravity

Kepler 55b 1.05 times earth gravity

Kepler 56b 1.08 times earth gravity

All the info above is based on what the app shows. All the above planets orbits inside the habitable zone as per the app.
I hope someone with more knowledge can confirm the latest release.
Once more info is available i will update this thread.
