That's an interesting git command, but shouldn't you use maint or
v3.3.3 rather than v3.3.0 ?
And maybe it's better to look at the bug tracker for finding the most
important and visible changes :
But I think your list is already mostly fine, except it miss the
single most important change IMO :)

Use sync.c for upgrade transaction prepare and commit
This patch utilizes the power of sync.c to fix FS#3492 and FS#5798.
Now an upgrade transaction is just a sync transaction internally (in alpm),
so all sync features are available with -U as well:
* conflict resolving
* sync dependencies from sync repos
* remove unresolvable targets
That's two long standing bugs, to say the least.
