...it also seems like battery life has improved. I've got a 1% increment battery monitor, which is still showing 100% after 20 minutes of web browsing, on wifi, from pulling off the charger.

Edit - scratch that...there is something wrong with my battery monitor (Minimal Text). The phone's system monitor dropped to 90% while Minimal Text's was still at "fully charged".

Anyway, here is the official change log:
