And if you are a WordPress developer, you will find:
[li]A new audio/video API gives you access to metadata like ID3 tags.[/li]
[li]You can now choose HTML5 markup for things like comment and search forms, and comment lists.[/li]
[li]Better filters for how revisions work, so you can store a different amount of history for different post types.[/li]
