The biggest part of this update is that change to an installer that downloads the installation files. The advantage to this is that updating is much easier. When future updates come out an Update button will appear on the start screen that will initiate the update process which will handle downloading the updated files and performing the installation.
Now for the fun stuff. First is the Growth Variable node. This node creates a variable that grows out from selected points. This variable can then be used by other nodes to create cool effects. The Trim Segment node can use a growth variable to create complex growing animations. You can also use the node to grow the thickness of a line across compound shapes.
On the raster side of things there is a new Voronoi node that creates a popular voronoi pattern.
The Blend Color node allows for the easy blending between two color parameter values.
