There are a number of changes under the hood according to the changelogs. The most important is, probably, the upgrades to the Music DRM capabilities of the handset, but there are also the usual bug fixes and optimisations.

The new firmware provides the latest versions of Ovi service applications. While these were available to download separately, it is nice to see them integrated into the firmware (good for new devices, but also saves valuable memory space).
