From what I can tell it's mainly a security patch. https://magento.com/security/patches/magento-201-security-update

Hi @lopez_osc, are you asking about changes in 2.0.0 vs 2.0.1 or 2.0 vs 1.x?

Re: What is new in Magento 2.0?

Dear Ms Sherrie,

I mean the changes in version 2.0 vs 1.x.

Can you show me some significant changes? And should I upgrade to version 2.0?

Thank a lot
