Editor: GameObject/Prefab inspector preview is much faster now for complex hierarchies (e.g. prefab with 10k objects, preview area goes from 3FPS to 40FPS). (1295887)
Editor: Made importing models with Blendshapes a bit faster if the Import Blendshapes setting is unchecked.
Editor: Optimized BC7 ("high quality" compression setting on PC/Console platforms) texture compression, now about 2-3 times faster. This is using a new texture compressor (bc7e), added option in Editor Settings to switch to the old one (ISPC) if needed.
Editor: Reorganized Quality Project Settings, to make it clearer which options are relevant to which parts of Unity. (1307483)
Editor: UI polish of Build Settings window (more logical sort of installed platforms, etc.)

GI: Make it visible in the GI Profiler module what the state of Realtime GI support and enabled state is, when no data is captured.
GI: Move memory related logging from console to log file.
GI: Reduced ringing when using Open Image denoiser.
GI: Run GICache trimming jobs every 30 seconds instead of back to back. (1289849)
Graphics: Added Color and Depth Load/Store actions support to the Frame Debugger
Graphics: Added support for "VFX.CameraBuffersFallback" preferences. It allows to select from 3 options:
-None: Do nothing, keep outdated buffer info from the last rendered frame.
-Prefer Main Camera (Default): Current behavior, use the buffer from Main camera when available, Scene camera otherwise.
-Prefer Scene Camera: Use the buffer from the Scene camera when available, even if the Main camera is being rendered as well.
Graphics: Allow the default specular reflection cubemap to be a RenderTexture (with dimensions CUBE)
Graphics: Improved error logging for the CopyTexture function.
Graphics: Improved the application of outstanding pending changes to RendererScene after a camera render.
Graphics: Optimize Material.FindPass. The speedup depends on the number of passed the Material has.
Graphics: Remove shader Passes that contain ray tracing shaders (closesthit, anyhit) when ray tracing is not supported by the system or graphics API.
Graphics: Setup unity_MotionVectorsParams built-in shader variable in Ray Tracing shaders.
Graphics: Virtual Texturing is now more robust when it comes to switching color space.
Graphics: [Metal] GPU-side error log improvement via enhanced command buffer error reporting
Kernel: Improved stability of player connection:
Receiving of messages may now be dispatched across multiple frames.
Fixed issue where player connection could corrupt message queue and reconnecting to app was required.
Better handled disconnection of app (situations like: app crash, force killing of app or loosing connection).
[Mobile Platforms] Initial support to suspending app.
License: Sync access token with L-Client upon change
Package: upgrade package to 2.1.4. The main purpose is to release new doc.
Package: Upgrading input system package to 1.0.2
Physics: Rearrange the ArticulationBody properties so that damping and friction is located right after mass and is not visually separated from it by the anchor properties
Prefabs: Updated documentation for Object.DontDestroyOnLoad
Profiler: Added profiler memory stats data, data is similar to the Profiler Module data found in the Profiler Window
Profiler: Added profiler target data to memory snapshot format, data consists of elements such as unity version, product name, total gfx memory, total physical memory etc.
Scripting: Added support for superluminal profiler (Internal only)
Scripting: Reduce and optimize regex usage to improve performance
Scripting: UX improved when setting up Unity version defines for asm definitions
Search: Added a way to manage the indices from the Search windows directly. (1307787)
Search: Each search index have their search unique group ID. (1307734)
Search: Fixed search doesn't display all results in project view. It now includes the same result as the legacy search engine (i.e. AssetDatabase.FindAssets) (1310140)
Search: Pressing ESC should not close the search window if docked. (1311205)
Search: Share the same search debouncing threshold with the project browser and the quick search window. (1298380)
Search: Update package search provider Install, Update and Remove button availability. (1309659)
Search: Use a single search provider to search any indexed object.
Shaders: Reduced memory consumption when loading shaders.
Shaders: Reduced shader variant memory usage. (1296101)
UI Toolkit: Added a new RuntimeDefault theme with less overhead for runtime usage.
UI Toolkit: Improved UI Toolkit event debugger. Improvements include optimizations, adjustable UI, settings, event and callback filtering, event replay.
WebGL: Added support for Screen Orientation Locking and Auto-Rotating for mobile browsers which support The Screen Orientation API
Burst: Add support for calling Burst code directly from C# without using function pointers.
Burst: Added support for creating profiler markers from Burst code
Burst: Added support for exceptions thrown from Burst to contain a callstack
Burst: Added support for LLVM 11 to bring the latest and greatest code generation benefits to Burst
Burst: Apple silicon support
Burst: Experimental support for some ArmV8.2A intrinsics (dotprod, crypto, RDMA)
Burst: full support for ARMv7 and ARMv8-A Neon intrinsics (out of experimental)
Burst: Preliminary support for loading additional burst compiled libraries in play mode/standalone - for modding support -
Burst: support for new intrinsics
Editor: Add support for menu states (disabled, checked) in QuickSearch.
macOS: Added support for ETC native compilation on Apple Silicon processors.
macOS: Added support for SpeedTree native compilation on Apple Silicon processors.
Package: Added Visual Scripting (previously known as Bolt) as a default package
Package: Update to Polybrush 1.1.0-pre.1
Package Manager: Ability to install a package from a browser hyperlink (including an experimental package).
Package Manager: If a user chooses to continue from the UPM dialog warning them of an entitlement error in one of their packages, then once the Editor is open, Package Manager window will immediately open to the first package with an entitlement error.
Package Manager: Support Packages with Entitlements
Physics: Added Enable All/Disable All buttons to the Physics Settings layer collision matrix that allows to disable or enable all of the layer collisions
Terrain: Introduced the new Instancing mode for Terrain details: This mode renders the detail objects with instanced draws using the material specified on the prototype prefab.
UI Toolkit: Added runtime access to the PanelSetting and UIDocument, making the package unnecessary for runtime UIToolkit rendering.
XR: Reduced VR rendering latency using controller Late Latching with skinning and mesh renderer support
