1) The new Nexus 5, with a beautiful 5-inch / 1920x1080px / 640x360dp / XXHDPI (480dpi) display.
2) The new Your Branding section of the Android Design guide (developer.android.com/design), including KitKat's use of a more neutral system color palette to let your brand colors shine.
3) Changes to touch feedback, specifically the more subtle pressed visual state.
4) The new Full Screen design guide section, including a description of the lean back and immersive approaches. Immersive mode allows your app to go truly fullscreen, hiding the status and navigation bars while consuming all touch events.
5) The new translucent bars mode that allows your app to draw behind the status and navigation bars with automatic background protection.
6) The ability to inset map controls with the Google Maps Android API v2; this feature was recently made available in Google Play services.
7) The introduction of new XXXHDPI (640dpi) launcher icon assets due to the Nexus 5 launcher's icon scaling behavior.
8) Documentation of new double touch gesture behavior, especially double touch drag.
9) The ability to capture video of your device's screen.
10) A new scenes and transitions API for developers that makes it easy to animate between states.
