In short: goal for this release was to provide better performance - speed along with lower memory usage. This is accomplished by better thumbnail capturing (like type grouping) and dynamic on demand limited scaling. Also regen behaviour was changed - it will be better in the future - but for now, changes are not portrayed dynamically during window resize and are applied after resizing stops (columns recalculating is made after move end).

Beside, basic skin frontend was added - but it is currently limited to only inbuilt settings. More features will be implemented in next release as this was not a goal for now.
