So reading that link, the following stood out...

So far, hundreds of Earth-size planet candidates have been found, as well as candidates that orbit in the habitable zone, the region in a planetary system where liquid water might exist on the surface of a planet.
Interesting way of putting it, given...

The point was that the PR is somewhat misleading (well, after all it is a press release!): (1) there are hundreds of Earth-sized planets, and (2) there are candidates in the HZ; what they didn't say that these two sets don't overlap...

Detection of Potential Transit Signals in the First Twelve Quarters of Kepler Mission Data

http://arxiv.org/abs/1212.2915

More than 18 thousand candidate planets. Incredible. In my opinion between 25 and 50 percent could be false positives.

The worst, almost 90 percent of candidates within 300-400 days period, will be false positives related to the yearly rotation of the spacecraft (some stars fall in bad pixels yearly frequently)

Not quite. Transiting planet signals are individual transits. That number is a total number of transits detected, not individual transiting planets. Specifically, see this sentence from the abstract:
The detected signals are compared to a set of known transit events in the Kepler field of view, many of which were identified by alternative methods; the comparison shows that the current search recovery rate for targets with known transit events is 98.3%.

From this set of targets [stars] we find a total of 11,087 targets which contain at least one signal[...] When targets with multiple detections are considered, a total of 18,406 potential transiting planet signals are found

They are clearly talking about transiting planet candidates (more than 18 thousand in more than 11 thousand stars).

There is a big difference between a potential planet signal and a published candidate. The identification of TCEs is the first step of the Kepler pipeline validation process, you cannot compare them with previously announced numbers of well-studied candidates.

The previous paper, http://arxiv.org/abs/1201.1048 , covered some of the earlier data and similarly there were thousands of TCEs but there were far fewer official candidates published from this period.

That spurious spike around one year period is bad, really couldn't be in a worse position.

According to the abstracts, the first two quarters yielded 5,392 TCEs and three years 18,406 TCEs. The number of detections have really slowed down, just as expected. Curious to know what the eventually published longer period candidates will turn out to be.

Fast rise of "Neptune-size" planets (4−8R) from P~10 to ~250 days Statistics of Kepler Planet Candidates up to ~0.75 AU
http://arxiv.org/abs/1212.4853

Frequency of Neptunes seems to increase rapidly out to longer orbital periods, in contrast to smaller planets ("super-Earths").

I found this interesting video:

Exoplanet Characterization by Proxy for Kepler-61b: How a Nearby Star
Bumped a Planet Out of the Habitable Zone

https://webcast.astrosci.ca/1/watch/273.aspx

As we can see Kepler-61b is KOI 1361.01 but turn out the host star is not M dwarf,but K dwarf Star with similar spectrum of Groombridge 1618,them the planet is not in Habitable zone of Kepler-61

For the abstracts you referenced, if you look at the online programme schedule and click on the presentations, it says "Embargoed?: Yes"
It isn't clear that the Kepler-61b video presentation was supposed to be embargoed.

There is no need to be embargoed the planet 2.5 earth size is around K7 star outside inside edge hz.Ridiculous little bit as I found nothing more to be forbidden for a while

If it is embargoed they have broken their own embargo by publishing it.

Contents of the presentation are embargoed but the abstract is essentially fair game.

In my point of view, it' s the most important finding in the paper.

Kepler-32 planetary architecture, very common in the Universe. The fraction of M dwarfs with planets likely to be very high. It could be greater than 100% (more than one planet, on average, for every M dwarf)
