Actually, Philly, I'm not sure that the upgrade is that big of a deal for most woodworking. There are some GUI changes and the addition of something called the Sandbox which is great for doing landscape related stuff. You might find it useful for heavily rounded forms but it isn't useful for rectilinear forms. One thing I really appreciate is the ability to have dimensions called out in inches and fractions. It used to be the best you could do was feet-inches-fractions. I'd much rather see 14 5/8" than 1' 2 5/8".

That wouldn't be an issue if you work in metric units anyway.
