"other radical new features" is a strong claim: can we back it up?

Conflating ideas here: the "faster" is how quickly 9.0 is released, and
the "trouble-free" refers to 9.0 itself. The sentence currently says that
users will make 9.0 itself faster.

Redesigned is not a power statement. Perhaps "improved"?

So vague it should be at the end of the list

Could be written better.
* Improved key-value data support
Very vague: can we be more specific?

Remove the first comma. Is the "overhauled internal code" any more than
any other release? Sentence still reads funny even with the comma
Might also want to mention how to give feedback (I presume -bugs?)
