The entire rule database was redone, so asking which new rules doesn't make a lot of sense. Many rules were added, but many were removed as well.
All new rues also means all-new rules, I guess.

It's an entirely new ruleset. You cannot take the 3.3 rules and drop then into 3.2.5 and have it work, for example.

I think if you think of it more like an anti-virus tool it will make more sense; it's not really about the new features as much as it is about being effective. running 3.2.5 is a lot like running a year-old Norton.
