Playback has improved too. The related videos have so far been very relevant for me (try [mentos and coke]) and you get alternate videos of someone putting mentos in coke under "related". You can view them back to back and you can also view the "popular" and "related" videos back to back or your search results. The player has a new "smooth video" option on the menu with different size options. i cant tell what it does....

As an interesting side note, the closed captioning search (the original intent of Google video) seems to be completely gone (try the queries on the google help page...kinda embarrassing.

Yeah, I was wondering about the CC searches. I couldn't seem to find how to search text in the videos. Even before the update, the list of text matches in the video was broken.

there is also a playlist feature which lets you play videos back to back. but you don't seem to be able to add individual videos to the playlist yet, basically, your playlist can be your search results.
