    Not too much has changed over those particular releases. ABAP objects has been extented a bit, with the inclusion of the "Friends" concept. Some minor changes to extensions of certain statements. No notable differences to look and fell of reports, etc.

    In 4.7, SAP introduced BSPs along with other web stuff.

    There are relatively few technical differences between 46B and 46C. However the jump to 47 Enterprise was a major change to the underlying technology.

    SAP changed syntax to support Unicode. They also added the WebAS layer (HTTP, SMTP support - the BSP programming environment, etc.).

    There is hardly any difference between 46B and 46C from ABAP poitn of view.

    However there is quite a lot of new features/tools/syntax changes in 4.70, which is based on WAS 6.20.

    (Web-extension/BSP, Unicode check, Code Inspector/SCOV, extended SE80, XSLT, New package concept etc)

    The best is check SE38 Application help "New features in ABAP" and check the Changes in Release 6.10 & 6.20 section.

    Same is also available in the Online help ( help.sap.com )
