Not that I know. There are many editoral changes so that even a diff
between the source form of the RFC is not meaningful. We had 22 drafts
in the last 9 years.
I remember these new features:
* MDC packets (your are using them for a long time).
* A new format to protect secret keys.
* New algorithms (AES, DSA-2, SHA-256 et al.)
but there are more.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
