There are some new features added, like inserting files from Google Drive which lets you to send large email attachments up to 10 GB which is 400 times larger than the current Gmail attachment limit of 25 MB .

While sending the Drive files, Gmail verifies whether the files is accessible to public or selected users. If required the sharing setting can be selected before sending the mail.The Google drive integration is definitely very useful feature for sending large files & is available only in new compose window.
