1. Select and Mask.This new tool replaces Refine Edge and is now faster and works better. You can use it to quickly mask hair, fur and other small details difficult to mask otherwise
2. Crop Content Aware. If you wan tot straighten a photo you may end up in the situation where you lose major photo resolution and also some elements can get to close to the edges of the photo. Now you can use this tool to automatically fill the white areas and maintain resolution or a large area
3. Liquify Face detection helps you make fine adjustment to the eyes, mouth, nose or face
4. Font detection is very useful to find out what font was used in a certain image and what similar fonts you may choose

At last Adobe says that their major focus is speed, so the new version of Photoshop runs faster and will continue to improve with further updates!
