Season 6 of The Walking Dead was finally released on DVD and Blu-ray. Among the special features is an extended version of episode 16:

...executive producers Robert Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple and Greg Nicotero told EW previously that they shot Negan’s entrance two-ways, with a more profanity-laced version planned for the Blu-ray set, so you can expect to see that included.

Having looked briefly (read: did not watch end to end, taking notes) at both versions on the Blu-rays, I can confirm that Negan drops quite a few F-bombs in the extended version while the standard version has much less profanity (just a few choice words).

However, there appears to be more differences than that: viewing the two versions, scenes do not occur at the same times. Some of them are off by 20-30 seconds, leading me to believe there is more material added to the extended edition earlier in the episode (note: the extended edition is only around a minute longer).

What differences other than Negan's profanity, if any, are there between the two versions of The Walking Dead season 6 episode 16? Are any of these differences important enough to add any meaningful information to the story?

There are a few scenes with differing lengths (marked with TV Version time / Extended Version time):

30:37 / 30:37-31:44:

After the attack in the woods and the black screen due to a commercial break, the Extended Version contains an additional scene with Morgan. He is riding across the ghost town for a while and the sound of bells is audible in the background.

Extended version is 66.7 sec longer

53:44-53:59 / 54:51-55:05

Alternate take. Negan swears plus his voice is pitched differently: "You killed more of my people. Not cool. Not fucking cool. You have no fucking idea how not fucking cool that shit is."

TV Version is 0.8 sec longer

55:28-55:39 / 56:34-56:45

After quite some time without any alteration whatsoever, alternate footage has been used here.

Negan: "But swallow it you most certainly motherfucking will. You ruled the roost."

Extended Version is 0.4 sec longer

55:56-56:10 / 57:02-57:16

Negan: "You are not safe. Not even fucking close. In fact, you are fucked (pegged), more fucked (pegged) if you don't give me (do) what I want. And what I want is half your shit."

TV Version 0.3 sec longer

56:33-56:45 / 57:39-57:48

When Negan keeps talking, the TV Version sticks to the medium long shot for a little while. After that, an alternate take follows.

Negan: "We own that fucking door. You try to fucking stop us (and) we will fucking knock that fucker (it) down."

TV Version is 2.8 sec longer

57:11-57:25 / 58:14-58:30

Negan: "I want you to work for me. And You can't do that if you're fucking dead, now, can you? I'm not growing a garden."

Extended Version is 1.7 sec longer

57:32-57:38 / 58:37-58:47

...and he ends his comment with "lot of them" - the shot is the same. The Blu-ray on the other hand contains a closer shot of Negan and in addition to that, he uses the words "shitload of them" instead. After that, an alternate take with a slightly longer comment: "More than I'm comfortable with. And for that, well for that you're gonna fucking pay."

Extended Version is 3.9 sec longer

57:44-57:58 / 58:53-59:06

After a few identical reaction shots, more alternate takes follow. Of course, Negan's choice of words is also different: "I'm gonna beat the holy fuck-fucking-fuckedy-fuck (hell) outta one of you."

TV Version is 0.4 sec longer

Aside from that, there are a few scenes with different audio due to language, but those are the scenes which have actual differences in length.
