WordPress 3.8 introduced one new action and five new filters:
Action triggered after all automatic updates have run.
Filter the debug email that can be sent following an automatic background core update.
Filter whether to notify comment authors of their comments on their own posts.
Include additional elements in the ‘At a Glance’ dashboard widget. This widget was previously ‘Right Now’.
Filter a user contactmethod label.
A list of all new hooks can you also find in the hot list of WP Seek.

Thanks WP Engineer! New actions and filters can only be a good thing.
wp_dashboard_recent_comments, can anyone help me with an example of how to increase the number of comments to 10?
Agree with Charlie – these new filters and actions have potential for some advanced reporting setups 🙂
@Dave: I think no, the value have no filters. The values and content is indie the function
wp_dashboard_recent_comments(). I think you must add your custom dashboard widget.
WordPress 3.8 is totally differ from its previous and its features and new stuffs are really good.
Thanks for telling new changes. I am wordpress developer and your new tips always help me.
I love -comment_notification_notify_author- this one! I urge all authors to check their posts on my website and respond to all comments made, this will make my job much easier!
Great change in dashboard but they are updating their cores quite frequently now. They should now be stable for sometime.
