John Clingan covers the clustering architecture changes with previous versions, the use of SSH, DAS (Domain Admin Server) scalability improvements, failover improvements with consistent hash algorithm for replicas and better performance, the new load-balancer configuration tool, and finally steps to deploy a highly-available application using the command line or the graphical admin.
