Here's an excerpt from the NEWS file.

* New commands \eqnum and \eqalignnum, counterparts of \(l)eqno and
  \(l)eqalignno, producing equation numbers which can be uniformly
  transformed to right-aligned (\righteqnumbers) or left-aligned
* Eplain has borrowed the eTeX, ExTeX, XeTeX and XeLaTeX logos from
* \idxnameseparator is now expanded once so that the .idx file
  contains its contents instead of the macro call.
* Non-silent indexing macros have been fixed not to produce a spurious
  newline when newline's catcode is 13 (active).
* Eplain now takes care to unactivate any active characters before
  typesetting index term in the margin for proofing.
* Updated ifpdf.sty.
* LaTeX package reloading warnings are now not shown on the terminal.
* Documentation improvements.

Thanks to everybody who contributed with bug reports, feature
suggestions and code patches.
