The Servlet Specification has a section outlining the differences from previous versions.

Basically no new functionality, but existing features have been improved.
Also, single threaded model is deprecated and eventually get phased out.

--Increased (improved?) integration with other J2EE specification and components.

--Filtering of RequestDispatchers and Error pages.

--Event listeners for requests and request attributes.

--Methods to query client connection details.

--Improved internationalization methods.

--XML Schema definition of the deployment descriptor.

The Servlets FAQ links to articles describing the differences from the previous version for most versions of the Servlet API.
