It will bring the OS version of the phone up to General Distribution Release 2 (GDR2), otherwise known as Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2.

Unfortunately, the support page does not offer any other specific information about what new features have been included in Update 2 for this smartphone. All the page does say is that this update is "designed to improve the performance" of the HTC One M8. The new build number for the phone is 2061.30.30501.605.
