Improvements that you are "taking advantage of" depends upon your code and
site setup.  Are you using database triggers?  Referential integrity?
 Interactive SQL?  TCP/IP connectivity?  The latter are examples of but four
proactive uses of OS/400 after V2R3.  Enhanced security, IBM support, and
overall performance are examples of things that you would take advantage of
without even trying.

V4R1 performance is the main thing that I can think of, although a few things
running native from a C/S (client/server) standpoint show up as well.  Others
probably have better input on this subject...

What machine are you moving from?
