They could put the reademe here, not having to download 1.3GB only to read the readme.txt… Thanks.

v16.09
New Features
Project Manager improvements.

Added the new update_modules command to the project.py utility. This command allows users to update modules in the project.
Automatic quality determination.

By specifying AUTO (P_AUTO) quality profile in the app module you can load your app in LOW or HIGH quality depending on your hardware specs. Also low-level performance benchmark can be executed using test_performance method.
Changes
The system for assigning shader’s directives was refactored. This will allow to reduce engine’s loading time and simplifies debugging.
Rendering of the anchors was speeded up on some devices through using the “translate3d” CSS property.
Fixes
Fixed the bug in the Samsung Internet browser when it hung if there was many anchors in a scene.
Fixed Web Player “alpha” attribute, which didn’t work.

Release notes are not official yet, and are subject to various modifications (as well as developer preview builds themselves). That's why we have not published them yet. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I've installed on Blender 2.78RC2… But what happened to the 16.09-Pre in the download page? I don't see the link … it has disappeared… I need to delete what I have already installed?
