I think the main theme is "Added Intrinsics". They were added to a lot of formats that were formerly running generic code on 64-bit builds. In many cases, a 32-bit build was faster than a 64-bit one, I believe that is no longer the case for any format. Other than that, there is almost nothing apart from performance that a user will notice. A couple new formats perhaps. No new functionality that I can recall. Tons of tiny tweaks, little performance boosts here and there and bug fixes. Dynamic had a makeover too. I'm not sure you need to include more than that in a summary. Re-phrase as you like :) magnum
