Here are the changes I identified on the 10.3.1.A.2.67 ROM, comparing with the previous 10.3.1.A.0.244

This was obtained by unpacking, decompiling and comparing the files from both ROMs (the Generic PT ones). Naturally, identified differences in binary files cannot be translated to *what* has been changed in them.


Framework
- Volume Up / Down keys will turn the screen on while a call is in progress (very useful if you like terminating calls with the power button)
- Default wallpaper is now a black screen
- One additional short code recognized as a free number (72340, in "de")
- Key charmap now used in the handler for AT+CKPD commands

Google apps
- Books updated from 2.7.39 to 2.8.69
- Chrome updated from 26.0.1410.58 to 28.0.1500.94
- new system app com.google.android.configupdater, version 4.2.2-721232
- Gmail updated from 4.3.1 to 4.5.2-714156
- Maps updated from 6.14.3 to 7.0.2
- GMS updated from 3.1.36 (669520-36) to 3.1.59 (736673-30)
- Hangouts updated from 1.0.1.678536 to 1.1.1.753199
- Magazines updated from 1.2.1 to 2.0.0
- Music updated from 4.5.914I.590354 to 5.1.1106K.749200
- Play updated from 4.0.25 to 4.1.10
- new system app Play Games, version 1.0.06 (750395-30)
- Plus updated from 3.6.0.44338848 to 4.0.2.48854689
- Talkback updated from 3.3.0 to 3.4.0
- Quick Search Box updated from 2.4.10.626027 to 2.6.7.721924.arm
- Videos updated from 2.4.14 to 2.6.9
- Youtube updated from 4.4.11 to 4.5.17

Other apps
- Bluetooth: 2 small fixes on Headset and Phone Book functions
- SMS app: now discards drafts when exiting the app in certain circumstances
- Album: fix for reload completed detection
- Calendar: minor layout change on the month view
- Contacts Provider: security vulnerability patched (related with exported files)
- Email: fixed parsing of styles when created hyperlinks on phone numbers
- Phone: only update the navigation bar if Phone is the foreground window; fixed handling focus on USSD dialogs
- Sony Share: change in landscape layout
- SmallAppsLauncher: better filtering when searching Play store for small apps
- Screen Mirroring: handle empty PIN when using WPS to connect to WiFi

Binaries and libs
- Includes (disabled?) support for CLAT: make IPv4 apps work on IPv6-only networks (http://dan.drown.org/android/clat/)
- Modem updated from ACEFWMAZQ-30110057 to ...-30110068
- several new libs related with image effects (blur, retrolux, ...)
- new font: Padauk

Kernel
- Changes in the calculation adjusted battery charge state (perhaps fixing the battery bug??? The code now matches line 1792 of this source)
- Some corrections in the MSM video driver
- No relevant changes on the ramdisk

The app didn't change at all, nor did any of the /system/lib/libcamera* files.
The only related file that does have some changes is libcalh_hal.so, which has mentions to messages related with thumbnails, exposure, etc. I don't know what changes are those, nor what modifications exist on the kernel / driver side, if any.
