Status values can be one or more of the following (each will appear on its
own line if set):

ACTIVE: The registry sets this status. The domain can be modified by the
registrar. The domain can be renewed. The domain will be included in the
zone if the domain has been delegated to at least one name server.

REGISTRY-LOCK: The registry sets this status. The domain can not be modified
or deleted by the registrar. The registry must remove the REGISTRY-LOCK
status for the registrar to modify the domain. The domain can be renewed.
The domain will be included in the zone if the domain has been delegated to
at least one name server.

REGISTRY-HOLD: The registry sets this status. The domain can not be
modified or deleted by the registrar. The registry must remove the
REGISTRY-HOLD status for the registrar to modify the domain. The domain can
be renewed. The domain will not be included in the zone.

REGISTRAR-LOCK: The sponsoring registrar sets this status. The domain can
not be modified or deleted. The registrar must remove REGISTRAR-LOCK status
to modify the domain. The domain can be renewed. The domain will be
included in the zone.

REGISTRAR-HOLD: The sponsoring registrar sets this status. The domain can
not be modified or deleted. The registrar must remove REGISTRAR-HOLD status
to modify the domain. The domain can be renewed. The domain will not be
included in the zone.

REDEMPTIONPERIOD: The registry sets this status when a registrar requests
that the domain name be deleted from the registry and the domain has been
registered for more than 5 calendar days (if the delete request is received
within 5 days of initial domain registration it will instead be deleted
immediately). The domain will not be included in the zone. The domain can
not be modified or purged; it can only be restored. Any other registrar
requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will be rejected. The
domain will be held in this status for a maximum of 30 calendar days.

PENDINGRESTORE: The registry sets this status after a registrar requests
restoration of a domain that is in REDEMPTIONPERIOD status. The domain will
be included in the zone. Registrar requests to modify or otherwise update
the domain will be rejected. The domain will be held in this status while
the registry waits for the registrar to provide required restoration
documentation. If the registrar fails to provide documentation to the
registry within 7 calendar days to confirm the restoration request, the
domain will revert to REDEMPTIONPERIOD status. The domain status will be
set to ACTIVE only if the registrar provides documentation to the registry
within 7 calendar days to confirm the restoration request.

PENDINGDELETE: The registry sets this status after a domain has been set in
REDEMPTIONPERIOD status and the domain has not been restored by the
registrar. The domain will not be included in the zone. Once in this
status all registrar requests to modify or otherwise update the domain will
be rejected. The domain will be purged from the registry database after
being in this status for 5 calendar days.

These are hardly "new" fields though .. They've been around for as long as I can remember, and that's a long time :)

I have seen Creation Date and Expiration Date for a while. Was it not across the board? Is this only for NetSol or will this propagate over all whois?

These fields effect only .COM and .NET domains. Verisign operates what is known as a thin registry. They keep very little information about the domain. But the release of these three fields makes public some of the information the registry is required to already maintain. The majority of the information for thin Registries are keep with Registrars.

Verisign's .ORG registry is now run by PIR.org and will be operated as a thick registry. Thick Registries already display this information. Most new Registries are operated as thick.
