What exactly is added via the Ancient Shadows expansion?

A: The latest release schedule for all Arcen products can always be found on the left sidebar of the main Arcen site, under the Release Schedule section. At present is it slated for October 2012.

The content of the fourth expansion has not been announced yet, but work has commenced on it and a lot of the ideas were drawn from longstanding submissions to the mantis idea tracker. At least the baseline of its as-yet-unannounced marquee feature is expected to be available as soon as the expansion hits its public beta phase (contrary to older expansions which typically launched their beta with just a bonus ship type).

Overall, this expansion is committed to doing things a bit differently. Each of the three preceding expansions followed a similar pattern with a focus on a single alien race, while the fourth expansion -- Ancient Shadows -- is instead focusing on its marquee feature and then a somewhat smaller mix of "the usual suspects" in terms of added content.

In general, the fourth expansion is expected to have a similar amount of impact on the game that the first and third expansions did, if not more. However, in terms of raw content it is expected to be a bit smaller than them mainly because it is starting at half the price point that they originally started at ($4.99 instead of $9.99).
