Yes. You are missing everything listed other then Overdrive. Plus, there could be other fixes behind the scene.

If you don't strip DRM and don't like the default widows and orphans, then you can change the default very easily.

As has been noticed, firmware version 4.21.15015 has been released. This will be going to all devices except the Mini.

The changes that I know of in this release are:
  • Overdrive
    • "Your Holds" tile added to Overdrive section of the store. This can be used to manage your holds.
    • Notification icon in in menu.
  • Highlighting
    • Highlight automatically created when more than one word selected. Tap "Undo highlight" if you don't want to keep it.
  • Widows & Orphans in epubs
    • Hidden options "readingAdobeWidows" and "readingAdobeOrphans" added to "Reading" section of the config file.
    • This overrides the default widows and orphans used in the RMSDK.
    • It does not override widows and orphans in the book.
    • Basically, add them and set them to 1.
    • This is epub only.
  • Image scaling with font size.

For calibre, there are no changes except to bump the supported firmware version. This has already been done and is in calibre version 4.16 that was released last week. For those who do not want to update the calibre version, it is safe to use the "Attempt to support newer firmware" option in the drivers.
Thank you, the improvement for highlight is a "mejoda" for me, so I think I'll skip this version.

It's quite possible this is how highlighting will be from here on. If that is the case, will you always skip new firmware?

Has the Kepub cover bug been fixed by this update or one of the plugin updates? A description of it was discussed on the #20 comment here.

Nothing here for me. Don't highlight/don't use Overdrive/fix widows and orphans in the css anyway. I'll skip this one.

Searching for "me joda" gives RATHER different translation results, but ones which fit better with the notion of not bothering with the update.

Ahh, I did not understand that you could insert spaces at will. So "mejo da" could also be the answer

As I'm not able to see the future, I'll take the decision when there is a new firmware.

Sorry, Spanish developer joke. In Spanish, "improvement" is the same than "mejora". When you do something worse than before, you *excuse my french* "lo jodes". So "mejoda" is something that, allegedly, is an improvement but it makes the product worse.

With this update, you don't have to fix widows and orphans in CSS. You do it in the config file once and done for most eBooks.
