The new features from this release have also been detailed in Daniel's blog.
Apex Class and Trigger Version Highlighting
Ideally, all apex classes and triggers within an org would be kept within the last 3 years releases (the last 9 API versions). The API version column will be colored to indicate how far behind a particular class or trigger is.
Export Metadata Packages from Package Builder
Added buttons to "Deploy Selected Files" package builder to export the selected metadata as a package. Either a complete zip or just the package.xml
