The user interface has been updated and streamlined, a new wide-screen mode enables the user to set the Preview area off to the right, a new transparency mode can be used to overlay and preview fonts in a working document, and printing is now enabled.

I just ugraded to 2.5; what a nightmare! Instantly lost all of my sets and worse, now all of my fonts say "not available"... I want 2.0.3 back!

If you haven't upgraded to 2.5 yet, don't do it... stick with 2.0.3.
