There have been some updates to Group Policy in Server 2012:

– Group Policy Caching – This feature will speed up the logon process because the Group Policy engine loads policy information from a local cache (Named a data store) instead of downloading it from a domain controller.
– Force refresh – This feature allows you to force a client to refresh it’s local and AD policies from the GPMC (Group Policy Management Console) (I can hear you screaming with joy!).
– Windows 8 support.
– New troubleshooting options.
