Some of the highlights:

GCC is no longer installed by default on architectures where clang(1) is the default compiler.

BIND has been removed from the base system.

make(1) has been replaced with bmake(1), obtained from the NetBSD Project.

pkg(7) is now the default package management utility.

pkg_add(1), pkg_delete(1), and related tools have been removed.

TRIM support for Solid State Drives has been added to ZFS.
