I've spent an hour googling, but all I can find is a list of differences between 8 and 8.1.  Can anyone tell me what are the differences between 8.1 preview and 8.1 final, other than the expiration date?

I think that's about it. I don't recall anything different when I updated to 8.1 after it came out.

A few differences I've spotted are: the colouring of start screen tiles is different, the help app works now, Skype replaces the old messenger app, system image backup has been re-added.

The Shutdown option on the Win-X menu added a "Sign Out" option.
