I have their list below but you can read their entire post at http://blogs.technet.com/configmgrteam/archive/2009/02/19/announcement-configuration-manager-documentation-library-update-for-february-2009.aspx.

About Report Models in SQL Reporting Services

About Configuration Items in Desired Configuration Management

- Updated with the information that providers retrieve configuration information by using objects and settings defined within the configuration item. The objects that can be defined are assembly, file or folder, and the registry. The settings that can be defined are XML queries, WQL queries, SQL queries, scripts, registry, Active Directory Domain Services, and the IIS metabase.

Prerequisites for Out of Band Management

- Updated with clarifications that the Intel HECI driver is required for in-band provisioning only; DHCP is also required for in-band provisioning; IPv6 is not supported; in-band provisioning is not supported with Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Tablet PC.

AMT Provisioning Issues for Out of Band Management

- Updated with the entry "Configuration Manager Fails to Provision Computers In a Child Domain Because of Missing DCOM Access Permissions", which describes a CA configuration requirement when the issuing CA is in another domain. To identify this troubleshooting scenario, look for ERROR: ICertRequest2->Submit failed: 0x80070005 in the log file amtproxyomgr.log.
