I think you're right. A few UI changes..., other than that, I see no new features.I've just fired it up in a Windows Sandbox and other than sender avatars next to the received message list I can't see any differences.
TBH I do prefer the v8 no avatar layout as space is at a premium where I keep it open and the extra space on the new one will mess my current layout up.
