what's new in 8.0.1?

I just downloaded & installed Mathematica 8.0.1 under my Premier Service 

The e-mail announcing availability of this upgrade states, "more than 
500 improvements, including feature, stability, and performance 
enhancements, as well as documentation updates."

Does anybody know exactly where one can find a list of what's changed 
from 8.0.0 to 8.0.1?

(If you haven't yet received notification of the upgrade availability 
but should get one, I think you just need to wait a bit: typically, WRI 
rolls out new releases over a period, so as to avoid glacial downloads 
from a torrent of download requests hitting their servers all at once.)

P.S. The installation process, including uninstalling 8.0.0 by the same 
installer, went really quickly (under Windows XP) compared to what has 
sometimes been the case in the past.
