Some of what's there in the HelpBrowser for 5.2 is so general and vague 
as to be almost useless!  Here it is in its entirety:

  Allâ??platform support for 64â??bit addressing
  Multicore support on major platforms
  Multicore support on major platforms
  64â??bitâ??enhanced arbitraryâ??precision numerics
  Vectorâ??based performance enhancements
  Automatic binary installation selection
  Bundled notebook indexing for desktop search
  Ssh support for secure remote kernels
  vCard and RSS import
  New algorithms for symbolic differential equations
  Enhanced performance for linear Diophantine systems
  Enhanced quadratic quantifier elimination
  Singularâ??case support for highâ??level special functions
  Enhanced statistics charts
  MathematicaMark 5.2 benchmark now covering grids & clusters
  And many more enhancements & innovations...

That last entry is especially useless!

For previous releases, including 5.1, the "What's New" HelpBrowser pages 
were MUCH more informative and included lots of hyperlinks to details.
