Autocompleting custom fields and the "favorite tickets" are the two  
things come tim mind.

That's really too bad. RT 3.6 is now the "old stable" release rather  
than the "current stable" release, which means that if you're just  
starting out, you're going to end up way behind.  3.6 is only getting  
"critical" security fixes at this point.  3.8 has hundreds of bugs  
fixed which were still present in 3.6.7.
