Here is the detailed change log in addition to the major new features stated above:

New features:
● New setting in Classic Start Menu: Invert Metro icon color

● New system for generating localized Group Policy (ADML) files
● Drives and folders can be pinned to the Start Menu from Explorer
● Touch support for scrolling single-column menus with a finger and touch support for the Start button
● New setting for the installer "NOSTART=1" to disable the automatic launch of the Start Menu after installation

Bug fixes, design changes and minor new additions:
● Ctrl+Backspace in the Start Menu search box deletes the previous word or path component
● Fixed the problem where settings did not get migrated when upgrading from 3.6.8 to 4.0.4
● Dragging a folder to the Pinned folder creates an expandable/cascading menu shortcut in the Start Menu
● Fixed a bug where the text is misaligned in the Start Menu Programs tree when you switch from the Classic to the Windows Aero skin
● The Start Menu search box in high-contrast Classic skin uses the correct high contrast color instead of white
● Pinning a shortcut preserves the localized name from Desktop.ini if there is one
● The REST_NOCLOSE Windows Group Policy correctly disables Shutdown, Restart etc in the Start Menu for all styles
● The Shutdown button of the Classic skin for the Start Menu shows a focus rectangle when the keyboard cues are enabled
● Fixed a bug in the Classic styles where you can't execute a UNC path if autocomplete was turned off
● The Classic Start Menu Settings UI now has the option to hide the Pin context menu item
● The Classic Start Menu Settings UI now has the options for setting menu width and Shutdown commands in Windows 7 style
● Fixed the problem with a click on the auto-hide taskbar being ignored when the Start menu is open
● Right-click on the Start button works even when the menu is opened or when the hover delay is 0
