couple of interesting features I can think of that weren't mentioned - which is probably our fault for not highlighting them more prominently, I'll have to check the release documentation:
* Bluetooth PAN support in NetworkManager - http://blogs.gnome.org/dcbw/2009/07/...etworkmanager/
* Easy access to GNOME Shell: install the gnome-shell package, and then you can select it from the Desktop Effects preferences app which you usually use to enable Compiz
* early r600 DRI available: just install the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental package. On my test hardware (a Radeon HD 4770), glxgears, compiz, and neverball work. GNOME Shell partly works but is essentially unusable as input to any GNOME Shell UI elements is broken. Didn't try any more advanced games yet.
It's also worth highlighting F12 should be rather less problematic on Intel and Radeon hardware than F11 was, we're at a better place with those two drivers at present. Also, kernel modesetting by default in nouveau, and suspend/resume support.
