Niemiec's book has some stuff on this, I have no opinion on it, I think it is sitting unread in my pile of things I'll never quite get to. You can find stuff by googling:
new for 10gr2
Limiting the search to seems to be a way to see r2 features for particular products.

I suppose you could compare the r1 and r2 new features guides, and poke about in MOS for things that are backported from 11g. I'm sure I've seen presentations when r2 came out, like oracle world and ioug, but wouldn't know where they would be online for general access.

There's dribs and drabs in blogs all over the place, if you find or create a nice summary let us know. Personally I tend to follow along as things are found, but skip r1's anyways. YMMV.
