The Change Log (section 7) lists the major changes since the original was posted. 

In particular, the original version had multi-mode devices, which were conceived of as a means for modeling combined cycle generators and storage devices. In the current version of the formulation, multi-mode devices have been removed. For Trial Event 1, multi-mode devices will not be a part of the formulation, and combined cycle generators and storage devices will not be modeled explicitly as such. Combined cycle generators, storage devices, and multi-mode devices may be added to the formulation later.

The original Challenge 3 Problem Formulation document dated February 16, 2022 is still available.
