Got the latest version of Blender yesterday..
took it for a spin..created this dune buggy
(i'm using the Blender UI Theme "Ënergy" by Studio LLB. get it here)
Notable new features that i enjoyed were:
A long awaited improvement in modelling called Bmesh.
"BMesh is the new Blender mesh system with full support for N-sided polygons instead of only triangles and quads.
In particular there is a new Dissolve tool to remove vertices, edges and faces without making holes in the mesh, a new Inset tool to inset faces, and a much improved Knife tool which takes advantage of N-gons to generate clear cuts. Tools such as subdivide and loop cut will also generate clean topology because faces no longer have to be triangulated."
(heres a video of it in action)
A full list of additions can be seen here in the official release notes
