Nowhere on their site can I find any additional enhancements except speedier page turns and improved opening of eBooks. Does anyone know what other performance enhancements there are?

Well, it does have quicker highlighting and word selection. Problem is that on some ebooks it won't work at all. There is now a dictionary word look up feature where you can type out a word to look up, rather than having to select it off the page.

It also has a quicker way to scroll through the book's table of contents, you can now swipe across the screen and it will scroll through the table of contents in a way similar to a mouse wheel.
