The completely redesigned exploration features will be launched then, and the honk is much much less all encompassing as it is now.
And you can get a detail scan just sitting around the star playing the scanner game and this is sufficient for the "first discovered tag".
In beta I was detail scanning systems of 40+ bodies in less than 10 minutes, and that includes those several hundre LS away.
Heck it's practically fun, at least compared to now where I have gone out and by 1500 ly I'm about to stab my balls just to alleviate the boredom.
The detail scanner is replaced with a surface scanner, that has it's own "surface scanned by" tag.
Using this needs like before to fly close and pelt a surface with probes that self regenerate apparently.
Using these you can for instance find surface POI's and features like fumaroles or geysers, as well as material hotspots in rings.
Although I think the mining iteration is a huge flop, still pointless and utterly mind-numbing, we just have a range of more utterly pointless things.
And scanning surfaces of planets, like mentioned, adds a second discovered tag and bonus as well as more credits I'm sure, which means faster rank progression etc.
