Vastly improved hardware support -- we now support every major card on
the market (Matrox and IBM are about the two vendors we lack support
for, and they're not pushing much).  Speed improvements through
acceleration for the Render extension in the standard and proprietary
ATI drivers, and in the proprietary nVidia drivers.  Improved
autodetection, which should now work in almost every case.
