And Chris said let there be light.....

The latest SVN build of World Wind has lighting effects, the Suns position is worked out from your system clock (very accurately, to within 1 degree according to Chris), and you can change the time scaling factor so the Sun rotates around the Earth visibly, it looks great as a screensaver on my 32″ TV.

There are a few more improvements that have been made since 1.3.5, a few have already been listed here like improved kml support, 3D objects. Others include better precision (no more camera shaking close up), no more blurry islands (hopefully), and the removal of the annoying zoom limit that was introduced by 1.3.5’s new render code.
