I'd add:
- The performance of the Typed Racket typechecker has been
  significantly improved.
- Typed Racket now optimizes at the REPL and inside typed regions.
- Typed Racket now provides a command-line static performance
  debugging tool. A DrRacket-based graphical version will be available
  in the next release.

Unrelated to TR:
- A high-level interface to Racket's logging facilities is now
  available in `unstable/logging'.
