For a complete list of all the changes you can read this section of the branches/2.6 log on the WordPress bug tracker.
Note that we have skipping version 2.6.4 and jumped from 2.6.3 to 2.6.5 to avoid confusion with a fake 2.6.4 release that made the rounds.
There is not and never will be a version 2.6.4.
