Yeah, and that is better than the original IMO. It would be nice to
have that introduction neatly tie together all the new features with a
single theme -- something more substantive than "enhancing scalability
and security" -- but given that we're talking about 9 or so basically
unrelated major features, that's kind of hard to do.

Now, maybe the bullet points could do a bit better conveying the
appeal/use-case/awesomeness of the features. I think some of John
Wang's suggested changes downthread are along these lines.
