Should read
  +The 4.5 release offers a number of improvements, including: shedding
(note two punctuation changes) and the list items should all be
separated with semicolons IMO.

Needs "and," or "and" before "Real Time Scheduler".  And you should

I would put a : after "such as" and use semicolons in this list too.

"and" should appear only in the final list item.

All of the entries in the list should be in the same part of speech.
I would make them all nouns.  So:

  +Additionally, 4.5 has a huge update to the ARM code, including support
  +for: >=1TB guests; more than 8 CPUs; Power State Coordination

Similarly for the final paragraph.
