    Did anyone save the file,during the upgrade, which listed all the new features with iSO5? I can't seem to find where I saved mine. This list was short and sweet. If you have it could you post it?

    Yes that's it! While upgrading, I only saw the single window and I didn't page through it so I wasn't to sure how short the list was. Thank you very much, this is a nice summary of all the new features.
