Perhaps the biggest change is that the Mashup tool now appears as a plus (+) icon. You can still use this feature to include such elements as Kaltura media or YouTube videos. 

Other changes include being able to launch the math editor to embed mathematical formulas in your text. The math editor opens in a new window.

The image that looks like a person allows for accessibility reviews of content.
