Where can I find a list of new or updated terminal commands or features for Mountain Lion?

Lacking any list, does anyone have a sugguestion on how to generate that list? (some combination of ls & diff)

It might also be interesting to compare the man pages to search for new options. defaults has an -app flag for specifying an application name instead of a bundle identifier. I'm not sure if it was added in 10.8 or 10.7, but open has an -F flag that opens applications fresh or without restoring windows. – user495470 Aug 10 '12 at 14:40
