+* The Admin UI has been re-written as a single page app using React.js, Redux and Elemental UI
+* An updated API for Lists and Fields
+* Better support for using Keystone without Express, or with your own express instance
+* Core functionality has been refactored and we're breaking Keystone up into separate npm packages
+* Startup time has been significantly reduced
+* LocalFile, S3File and AzureFile have been replaced by a new generic `keystone.Storage` engine and File field
+* We have much higher unit and end-to-end test coverage

+Please try out the beta and let us know what you think:
