Allen may have a cheat sheet, but check out the spec itself:

http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/files/drafts/tc39-2009-025.pdf 
  (via the front-page link at http://www.ecmascript.org/)

 From the intro, a summary of sorts:

"... accessor properties, reflective creation and inspection of  
objects, program control of property attributes, additional array  
manipulation functions, support for the JSON object encoding format,  
and a strict mode that provides enhanced error checking and program  
security. "

Annex D and Annex E also list changes, focusing on changes with  
possible and known compatibility impact.
