Other than the wireless setup, who has some insights into its features that surpass the old ones?

The Limiters can be set to true RMS limiting, and or peak limiting. With some creative work with the compressors, you have have both.
Then the ability to load and save files to any device, any routing from input to output imaginable, all in a simple to use gui interface. This was dbx's problem before - the bad user interface that nobody could figure out how to use, all fixed now. I can grab a tablet and just drag eq's and faders with my finger.
The PEQ's are awesome. You'll never run out, you can have 12 separate ones on the inputs, 14 on the AEQ on each output, then another 8 on each output if you select that option. Need 34 PEQ's for each of your compression drivers and another 22 for the midbass and then 22 more for your subs? Done! ... and don't forget you'll still have a 30 band Graphic EQ left over just in case! ... and that is just the left channel, you can do the same for the right
Did I mention the wireless? My phone, my tablet, my laptop, doesn't matter. If I am in the crowd and hear something I wish to change I grab one of them and do it. Delay stack volume and delay can be done right in the crowd. If you every used a wireless mixer then it gives you the same freedom for the PA side of things. You can monitor and control the outputs, watch if the limiters are kicking in or not, everything remotely. Really good for keeping an eye on DJ's. I can watch from another country as long as I have wifi.
