The group categories are listed also at http://www.loc.gov/standards/valuelist/lcdgt.html
One additional free, but unsatisfactory, way to see the approved LCDGT terms themselves is to view them on the approved monthly lists:
List 17 from 2015 contains the first approved batch: https://classificationweb.net/approved-subjects/1517.html
List 19 contains the second approved batch and changes to the first: https://classificationweb.net/approved-subjects/1519.html
And then in 2016, the first batch approved since SACO proposals were accepted was monthly list 3, followed by 4 and 5.
In answer to the question about the frequency of update of the PDF consolidated list, I believe that it will only be updated yearly like the other PDF lists for LCSH, LCGFT, etc.

Can someone confirm my suspicion that the PDF listing there is only updated annually, not monthly?
But as mentioned in the "Introduction" PDF, the vocab are available via id.loc.gov:
And from Classweb (subscription required):
MARC records are available via one corner of the Classweb site:
