2. Resumable online index create operation to pause and resume later from where the operation was paused or failed, instead of restarting from the beginning.

3. Row mode memory grant feedback

4. Approximate COUNT DISTINCT (for big data scenarios)

5. Batch mode on RowStore without ColumnStore index

6. Table variable deferred compilation (for better cardinality estimates)

7. New DMV sys.dm_db_page_info system function returns page information

8. Database scoped default setting for online and resumable DDL operations (ELEVATE_ONLINE or ELEVATE_RESUMABLE)

12. Always On Availability Groups – upto 5 synchronous replicas (3 till now)

13. Expanded support for persistent memory devices (by bypassing the storage stack of the operating system using efficient memcpy operations)

14. SQL Data Discovery and Classification [more info]

19. Scalar UDF inlining

20. Hybrid Buffer Pool [more info]
