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 :)
