Where can I find the new scheme details ?

I don't - I haven't found any. The page you posted is the most authoritative page but it refers to the old scheme (#!, ?_escaped_fragment) and I can't tell with certainty what stays true for the new scheme.
So I am thinking about using #! instead of # and see what happens, or using the History.pushState() (I not support IE 9 anyway), as I get the idea that these url's (created with the pushState()), can be indexed by Google. But I am not sure.

I don't know about pushState(). I am using GWT History.newItem(). Looks like pushState() requires some reading from my part :-).
What do you think? Are your ur's with the # fragment indexed by Google?

The point is: I am not sure. I switched to #! from # and I can't go back because the old scheme with _escaped_fragment_ is honored from LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook, Twitter and Bing so I will support nevermind what google does. FYI google crawls my pages both new style and old style - but my pages have #!

If I find anything new I will post it here.
