Does the new toolkit maintain the same list of RDA Core elements as the original toolkit? I can't find information on it.
I think core elements have been eliminated in 3R and it's been left to application profiles to specify which elements may be required.

I believe Core Elements has been replaced by the concept of minimum descriptions. The guidance page for minimum description is at Guidance > Resource description > Minimum description of a resource entity. Most of what used to be Core Elements would now be specified in metadata application profiles for specific communities.
I should actually say that there are guidance pages for coherent description, minimum description, and effective description. But the guidance for effective description just says that it meets the mimimum description plus additional elements determined in application profiles, policy statements, cataloger's judgement, and availability of information.
