Verizon seems to have posted a PDF listing some of the improvements in the yet-to-be-released Motorola DROID 2.1 update. The update has a version number of AP: ESE53/BP: C_01.3E.03P and goes on to list a litany of improvements and added features:

Enhancements

  • New Weather and News application plus widget.
    • The Weather and News app pulls the information you want from the
      Web and brings it to your fingertips. You get weekly and hourly

  • New support for voice-to-text entry.
    • Whenever a text-entry box appears, simply tap the microphone icon on the virtual keyboard and speak.
  • New Gallery application with 3D layout. View and share photos taken with your phone and images from your online Picasa Web albums.
  • Live Wallpapers offer richer animated, interactive backgrounds on the
    home screen. Access them with a long press anywhere on the home screen. Tap Wallpapers, then Live Wallpapers.

Improvements

  • Free Yahoo!® Mail is now supported—simply sign in with your Yahoo! email address and password.
  • Google Maps update
    • Personalized suggestions and synchronized starring with
      desktop maps.google.com.

      • Starred items are stored and synced automatically between Google
        Maps on your device and maps.google.com on your computer, making it easy to search for places you’ve searched for before.
    • New night mode in Google Maps Navigation automatically changes the screen at night for easier viewing.
  • Improved pattern-lock functionality.
  • Improved handset audio when disconnecting a wired headset.
  • Email accounts no longer need to be re-entered after an over-the-air update.
