According to WordPress Codex website, the first release candidate for WordPress 2.2 is now available. Some of the new features are as follow:

  • * Improved comment editing

    1. o Widget capability added to Default and Classic themes
      o Archives and categories widgets have option to display in pulldown box
  • * Deactivate Plugins automatically (activate automatically not in yet)
  • * New Blogger Import
  • * Fewer clicks and better user experience for upgrades
  • * Improved login accessibility

In this major release, there are much more powerful features than you might see here. A lot of improvement has been made towards this version over WordPress 2.1. Whilst this may attract a lot of attention, but it is vital to note that it is still a release candidate. Hence, bugs may still be present.
