I used both Stacker 1.something and 2.0, and didn't really notice much
difference. The 2.0 manual says that compression and decompression is
faster in 2.0 than in previous versions. 2.0 also supports removable
media (you can use it with RAMcards on the UltraLite -- works great).
There's also a defragger for Stacker volumes.

The most noticable feature of 2.0 is the "command assistant" and "smart"
installation programs, none of which I use. They take up way too much
space :-).
