What's new in ODM? (seeking feedback)

At the risk of oversimplifying the incredible work that Piero, Stephen, and others have put into ODM in recent years, I am attempting to distill a “What’s new in ODM” list for an upcoming conference presentation. Here’s what I have. Any favorites? Anything missing? (The audience is academics and researchers who have not used ODM recently, or are not familiar with it.)
