- Fixed sup­port for IEvent­Dis­patcher imple­men­ta­tion pat­tern
- Improved seri­al­iza­tion robust­ness
- Improved matrix han­dling
- Imple­ment string and name­space pool­ing to reduce mem­ory con­sump­tion
- Proper sup­port for pri­vate name­spaces
- Improved sup­port for fonts
- Sup­port LLVM 3.1
- Fix full vol­ume issue when PulseAu­dio flat vol­umes are enabled
- Ini­tial sup­port for AIR desk­top appli­ca­tions

The main items that stick out is that there's now support for the BBC video player, initial support for Adobe AIR desktop applications, PulseAudio fixes, and support for LLVM 3.1.
