* addressbook completely rewritten (Group-addressbooks, Organisation-views, improved LDAP support)
* new fully integrated tracker application used by the project itself since some time
* new imap backend and many improvements for FMail
* Gallery2 port for eGroupWare
* many improvements in nearly all applications
* have a look at the release-notes:

The 1.4 release contains no more of the 1.2 contrib applications. If you want to continue to use them - against our recommendation, as they are no longer maintained - you can do so by checking them out from svn, see
