Drawing Recovery Tool
There is a new drawing recovery tool that is launched the next time AutoCAD is launched after it encountered a fatal error or crashed. It allows you to quickly open any drawings that were open when a crash happened. It also allows you to open any backups that might be available for the drawing too.

Using Search in Windows Explorer to Find Text in Drawing
If you are a user of the search feature in Windows you will be happy to know that Autodesk has implemented the ability to search text and custom drawing properties in a drawing for a text string. This includes the following object types: Text, Mtext, Attributes, Tables, and symbol table names like a Layer name.
