Mostly Vista support and new hardware support, such as USB 2.0 and 64-bit sound. It also has both 32-bit and 64-bit binaries, so it'll be a native 64-bit application on 64-bit machines, giving a nice performance boost. -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering Strategic Lead Alpha/AMD64/x86 Architecture Teams Games Developer/Council Member/Foundation Trustee Gentoo Foundation
