The most important feature is the change of the garbage collection algorithm. Until now, reference counting had been used, now mark and sweep has been implemented. This alternate algorithm has to be run once in a while and bears some calculation overhead, reference counting does not suffer from this disadvantage. However, reference counting does not detect all lost objects, i.e. it does not deal properly with cyclic references, thus potentially causing memory leaks.
