The new version fix core ROS and updated principals tools rviz and rqt. Additionally, this release of ROS has made strides to depend on canonical versions of dependencies, rather than packaging our own versions. This is true of PCL, Stage, and Gazebo and other smaller libraries which used to be customized and released separately by the ROS community. Hydro also has improved integration with Gazebo, see: Gazebo ROS Integration.
