V Did have AirPrint in developer beta build, support but seemed to be removed from released version.
* Can hack back in the support, but you still need iOS 4.2 which isn't out yet.

* Provides a number of important stability and performance improvements.
V New 'Airplay' icon added, but Airplay isn't really new.
* Yes you can now AirPlay to the new Apple TV
* Isn't this just a 'push' vs. 'pull' change? My Apple TV can already browse and stream content from my Macs. We're just reversing the order.
V iOS 4.2 second gold master

V Reports that a wi-fi bug was delaying release
