Thanks to everyone for your responses! I went ahead and downloaded the update and did a manual install; I had the same experience as Asawi with the long update process, but it evenually worked.
I noticed all the updates that were detailed above.
A few other things I noticed:
1) The fonts on the button bar (when you push the n button) seems smaller and smoother. Ditto with the in-book pop-up menu.
2) There's a new preference under the Shop menu in Settings. We now have the option to redeem Gift Cards and check Gift Card balances.
3) Under Social settings, there is a new option called Auto-friending, which will automatically add Facebook friends as Nook friends. This is enabled by default, so you might want to check your settings.
