A major upgrade was given to the Grease Pencil tool, which inter alia brought the ability to edit and animate strokes. The first developments from the Gooseberry Project like a Sequencer Backdrop, Cycles viewport world background and others were added. Cycles got various improvements and speedups, as well as support for cameras inside volumes, the UI got a new ‘minimalistic’ fullscreenmode and Input Method Editor support for textbuttons (used for complex Chinese and Japanese character input), the Knife-tool was improved, Freestyle got a SVG exporter, and many more features which are worth checking out!
Blender 2.73 has a new feature: predictive tracking. Here is a nice demonstration of speed improvements which came with predictive tracking by Sebastian Koenig. But speed is really just one aspect of the new tracking method. It is also more accurate and robust.
