The GUI is slimmed down and simplified, and all mail UI is disabled until you actually create an account. It works with Gmail, too.
One interesting feature is the start bar which appears when you click in the URL field on the address bar. There's a "Top 10" button there, for instance.
Wasn't Opera working with Mozilla to standardize browser extensions? I can't seem to find the reference now.
One thing I've noticed from the changelogs is the distinct lack of improvements in page rendering, CSS support, etc. All the changes going through appear to be bug fixes and interface improvements. Although Opera's standards support is excellent, it still trails behind Mozilla/Firefox in some areas, and there seems to be little work done in that respect at the moment.
Multiple rendering fixes.
Each version brings some new CSS improvements. (Perhaps not between versions Preview 2 and 3, but definitely between 7.54 and Preview 3. I noticed some changes and others have too.)

What's wrong with that? I'd prefer them to fix as many bugs as possible rather than add new (often unwanted) features.

That's a good thing. I'm all for bug fixes and UI improvements, but the changelog gives the impression that this version was just that, with no change in the underlying rendering engine. I'm glad to see that they haven't stopped work in that area.
