Haven't seen the official chcnagelog, but as I have used the svn version for some time already, noticed some nice improvements. Apart from thunar (which I find an excellent alternative for nautilus) there is a new terminal emulator, some window manager tweaks in the setting section, also in setting an easy way to set the startup programs. Also an important change is that xfdesktop allows icons. Loads of people waited for that afair.

As for multimedia, I only need something for music and my choice is mpd (unstable, I have lots of musepack files) + gmpc. It's very lightwieght, plays everything I want and fits in the de very well.

A good tag manager would make this combination perfect (I find easy tag... not easy ;)
