    Actually the springboard isn't such an upgrade, because when you jailbreak 1.1.3 you can't install SummerBoard or Customize because they can only be used in 1.1.2 and 1.1.1 firmware.. Until they are updated they are unable to be used..

    Webclips on Springboard
    Wiggly Icons, more importantly, you can move the icon to wherever you like, even a new page.
    Location on MAPS : not accurate outside the US yet though
    hybrid Mode on maps, overlays Road names on Satellite view
    Pushpins on Maps
    SDK compatability Preparation

    You can still add custom Icons Via SSH directly into the Application folder

    When viewing a webpage, click the "+" icon at the bottom, select "ADD TO HOMESCREEN"

    this then places a Icon Link (known as a Webclip) to the Springboard.

    Mainly the benefits of upgrading are that you get the updated weather, mail, etc apps, as well as webclips and icon reorganization (we did have this ability in 1.1.2 however the new way is pretty cool). Also when apple releases the SDK and apps are available from Apple, we'll be able to get those too.
