Full list of changes (just noticed)

Improved design of layout, including for Validation results.
Added "beefed up" Tip-of-the-Day.
Many accessibility fixes, both to the web site and the Result page.
Major internal restructuring. The code has undergone significant refactoring
with many benefits. It is more readable and easier to understand, much more
robust, much improved security, more modular, and performance should be
significantly better. There is tentative support for running under mod_perl
(leading to even greater performance enhancements) and memory consumption
should be much improved.
Many new document types are supported and support for some existing document
types has been improved. Notable changes and additions include:
Support for application/xhtml+xml.
Support for XHTML+MathML and XHTML+MathML+SVG.
Support for SVG and image/svg+xml.
XHTML 1.0 Second Edition and XHTML 1.1.
Output has been reworked to be easier to understand.
And a whole bunch of bugfixes... :-)

For anyone who's interested the W3C seems to have changed the look and feel
of the validator, tip of the day seems to be the main change, plus more
emphasis on the document being valid.
