Not all contributions are mine (although if I've forgotten any, it's likely
because they weren't :)

- sander API
- numerous ParmEd enhancements and significant parsing speed-ups
- chamber -> ParmEd, better support for CHARMM force field (particularly
- pdb4amber improvements (e.g., can now use reduce, auto tautomer ID)
- major improvements to cpptraj (Dan can summarize any major bullet points)
- pytraj -- Python bindings to cpptraj
- pymsmt -- for modeling metal complexes
- Optimized nucleic acid GBneck2 parameters
- trivalent and tetravalent metal ion parameters and 12-6-4 monovalent ion
- Major sander cleanup
- gbnsr6 program for improved GB model in single-point calculations
- OPC water model
- Support for clang compiler and dragonegg GCC plugin
- Implicit membrane support in FEW and PBSA (although I think it's only
*new* in FEW)

Can't think of any more at the moment.
