Some of the (main) patches included, from the dedicated wiki page[1], are:
  Tsearch2, big feature
  HOT, performances & scalability
  Async Commit, performance & scalability
  Sync Scan, performance & scalability
  Load distributed checkpoint, perfs & scalability
  Updatable Cursors, feature
  Circular buffer in tuplestore, perfs?
  scan resistant buffer cache, perfs & scalability
  varlena length, perfs & scalability
  Index Advisor, scalability

Sorry if some items are badly categorized, feel free to correct if it proves 
useful for the topic. Same with missing important patches...

What I'd propose as the main theme is scalability and ongoing features 
completion. PostgreSQL has less and less missing from the other big 
commercial ones, and is more and more capable of serving big databases in 
demanding environments. More capable than competition? certainly, try out by 

Ok, I'll let the people with some editing talent formulating this ;)


Hope this helps, Regards,
