In 5.2, the 'what is new in 5.2' does not list such functions. It just 
says 'highlights' and there are no links to any new or modified 
functions in 5.2. You are correct that 'what is new in 5.1' does link 
to new/changed functions in 5.1.  Still a command to generate such a 
list would be useful.

It is possible to conclude then that there actually no new or modified 
functions in 5.2, at least nothing that is user visible.

May be when it says "New algorithms for symbolic differential 
equations ", it means these are all internal changes. But it would 
have been nice to know which user level functions these new/improved 
algorithms would affect or more information about what these algorithm 
are about.
