I find this interesting to note, too:

- In-place editing of input fields

The user can now modify the content of an input field directly in the 
document's text area - no additional pop-up dialogs are needed.

- Load/import of 3D charts improved

A performance problem with documents that contains big 3D charts while 
loading was solved. For exampe, a document (external with a huge chart 
containing 100x100x5 vertical 3D data boxes) could not be imported at 
all. It can now be loaded in seconds.

- Improved graphic modifications/filters for vector graphics

When applying modifications and/or filters to graphic objects the change 
was often applied by internally changing the vector graphic (SVG or 
metafile) to a pixel-based variant. This makes the advantages of vector 
graphics vanish and often results in bad output quality for print and 
PDF export. Now all usages of vector data in graphic objects are equally 
improved for this aspect and in the future.

- Changed OS X support to 64-bit (OS X 10.7 and newer)

To guarantee a continuous but also better support of the OS X platform, 
a switch to 64-bit was necessary. However due to deprecated libraries 
this means also that OS X versions older than 10.7 cannot be supported 

@Herbert: I hope it's not too bad explained. Please change as you see 
fit. ;-)

(BTW: This is not yet in the release notes [2])
