My 2 favourites from the manpage:

- The dh_auto_* helpers now resets the environment variables HOME and
  common XDG_* variable. HOME and XDG_RUNTIME_DIR are each set to a
  distinct writable directory. The rest of the environment variables
  are cleared.
- The dh command sequencer will now skip all hook and override
  targets for dh_auto_test, dh_dwz and dh_strip when
  DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS lists the relevant nocheck / nostrip options.

The first allows removing dances with $HOME for packages with
testsuites that need a home directory; the latter saves
    ifeq (,$(filter nocheck,$(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS)))
in an override_dh_auto_test which does more than dh_auto_test (and
mkdir etc.), it's now completely skipped.
