4. Simplified header
5. Built-in multicast (not just !broadcast in LANs)
6. Enhanced ICMP(v6): MLD/IGMP, ARP/ND
7. Massive addressing space
7.1 Aggregation (routing, filtering)
7.2 Lesser complexity in management: uniform sized subnets, long-lasting
"creative" addressing plans, growth resistant
8. Privacy extensions, CGAs
To name a few, too.
Some of this may come with a security trade-off due to less tested stacks,
understanding from technical staff, and so on, or simply because that
particular issue has not been addressed by design. It is definitely an
improvement IMO, but it is certainly not a cure-all panacea.
I'd like to hear about _your_ perceived benefits of IPv6 too :-)
Just a few

bañarse en las claras corrientes de agua, y comer los frutos de la tierra
olvidando todo trabajo y fatiga.
