There are three significant enhancements to the Front End in Mathematica 9:

 1. Dynamic highlighting
 2. Context-sensitive input assistant.
 3. Next-computation suggestions bar.

Enhancements #1 and 2 are described in:

And #3 in:

  
http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/howto/UseTheSuggestionsBar.html

But despite your hopes, no, so far as I can tell Mathematica is no closer to producing the equivalent of LaTeX-like perfectly-typeset math.
