Homo sapiens apparently got an immune system boost from mating with Neanderthals:
http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-06-neanderthals-early-humans-disease.html
 
... not sure if this one (also about Neanderthal DNA) is related to the foregoing ... it's pretty technical:
http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/gnxp/2011/06/massive-neandertal-denisovan-introgression/

Also not sure if this report on Neanderthals being 'versatile hunters' is recent or not:
http://content.usatoday.com/communities/sciencefair/post/2011/06/neanderthals-shifted-hunting-methods-/1

The change from hunter-gatherer to farmer apparently made our brains shrink:
http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-06-farming-blame-size-brains.html

On homo erectus' varied diet:
http://www.newswise.com/articles/first-direct-fossil-evidence-of-diet-differences?ret=/articles/list&category=science&page=1&search%5Bstatus%5D=3&search%5Bsort%5D=date+desc&search%5Bsection%5D=20&search%5Bhas_multimedia%5D=
 
Oetzi apparently had bad teeth:
http://news.discovery.com/history/oetzi-iceman-bad-teeth-110615.html

Feature on human evolution:

Crafting of tools led to changes in brain development, apparently:
http://www.lunduniversity.lu.se/o.o.i.s?id=24890&news_item=5626
 
Some 32 000 years b.p. human remains from the Ukraine:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-13846262
 
Hominids, hominins, now hominoids ... from Swabia:
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/06/110622072744.htm

They've figured out what Otzi's last meal was:
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/06/110623-iceman-mummy-otzi-meal-goat-stomach-science/

Lascaux's petroglyphs are at risk still/again:
http://beta.news.yahoo.com/lascauxs-18-000-old-cave-art-under-threat-145349240.html
 
TV program hype pondering why there is only one human species:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-13874671

They did a brain endocast on a homo erectus skull:
http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-06-brain-endocast-nanjing-homo-erectus.html

More on the benefits of human/neanderthal interbreeding:
