Google has updated Analytics, and the feature that made this most obvious was the date range picker. Before you even open it you can see a new Comparing to: Site ? text.
On opening the data picker, they now let you choose today in New Zealand time.
No more editing the URL to see what is happening now! This is quite useful when I get comments to see how people found my site etc.
I will have to explore to see if I find more features, but for now, my #1 missing feature has been solved.
