Microsoft states in their official blog that the release also comes with previously mentioned tenant-wide framework extensions. Here is an excerpt -
 
Commonly, we see SharePoint Framework used to both deeply customize a specific site (for example, a communication site for your marketing team), as well as provide common functionality across sites. This functionality can include capabilities such as a common header or a common footer. For the latter scenario, tenant administrators can now opt to deploy extensions within a SharePoint Framework package across your tenancy. Now every SharePoint site in a tenancy can be easily customized and extended with the power of script."
 
The framework has a better and easier to use dialog with additions like interoperability with React-based control namely Office UI Fabric React. The improvements are directly related to the issues presented and suggestions made by the developer on GitHub.
