The Exoplanet Orbit Database (EOD) compiles orbital, transit, host star, and other parameters of robustly-detected exoplanets reported in the peer-reviewed literature. The EOD can be navigated through the Exoplanet Data Explorer (EDE) plotter and table, available on the World Wide Web at exoplanets.org. The EOD contains data for 1492 confirmed exoplanets as of 2014 July. The EOD descends from a table provided by Butler and coworkers in 2002 and the Catalog of Nearby Exoplanets (Butler and coworkers in 2006), and the first complete documentation for the EOD and the EDE was presented by Wright and coworkers in 2011. In this work, we describe our work since then. We have expanded the scope of the EOD to include secondary eclipse parameters and asymmetric uncertainties and expanded the EDE to include the sample of over 3000 Kepler Objects of Interest (KOIs) and other real planets without good orbital parameters (such as many of those detected by microlensing and imaging). Users can download the latest version of the entire EOD as a single comma separated value file from the front page of exoplanets.org.
