The domain and functional level page shows a lot of what has been added in different versions

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771294.aspx

There is also a page with new features in 2012 for AD  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831477.aspx

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn268294.aspx

Search around and you will find more.   One big thing is the emergence of AD Admin Center as a legitimate admin tool in 2012

I also posted about the powershell versions in different versions of AD
