Check the release notes for all changes.

This release finally comes with custom fields support. This means that you are now able to define additional fields that your users have to fill out before submiting the comment. You can have a text field, checkbox or select field. Refer to our documentation for more details.

Another addition is support for EasySocial avatar and profiles. (if you get any errors in the frontend related to the avatar support make sure to open your settings in the backend and save them after that)

If you need a language pack look over here.
