Default T5 Star Systems - Using Current NASA Data?

Just curious to see if the T5 rules include more updated information from NASA to create "realistic" Star Systems and planets?

I suspect the rules have been changed a bit from the old, CT rules, but just wanted to know if they've been tweaked to include some of the latest data and hypotheses, e.g. they now believe about 60% of stars include planets in their systems, as opposed to the 1% believed some time ago; and that perhaps 1% or more of the worlds are Earth-like in temperature and have liquid water.

I'd also like to know if they include rules for the possible greater likelihood of habitable zones being found around red dwarves, and that some rare star systems may even have 2 - 3 habitable planets in them, as opposed to only one?
