VP9 asm by Ronald that made the codec usable on x86_32 and also pre-ssse3 CPUs 
like Phenom (Even dual core Athlons can run 1080p 30fps VP9 content now). Pretty 
good argument to convince Google and Mozilla to use ffvp9 IMO :P.
HEVC improvements could also be mentioned (C and asm performance improvements, 
and monochrome sequence support).
