The main new thing is effects are now part of the NKS standard. Here's a list of 2.0 changes:
ADDED Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) FX Plug-in Support
NKS FX brings the familiarity and immediacy of the NKS experience to FX plug-ins
Full integration with the Native Browser and intelligent parameter mapping via Native Map

ADDED VST FX Plug-in Support
Load any VST FX plug-in via the Plug-in Bar, customise mappings, and save user presets in the Native Browser

ADDED KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MK2 Mixer Page Indicators
Channel Mute and Solo state indicators on the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MK2 Mixer page in Logic Pro X, GarageBand, Ableton Live, Cubase and Nuendo
Channel Record Arm state indicators on the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MK2 Mixer page in Ableton Live

IMPROVED Behaviour of KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MK1 and MK2 PRESET UP / PRESET DOWN buttons is now consistent in all modes

FIXED Intermittent crash when navigating tracks in Logic Pro X

FIXED Intermittent crashes when quitting KOMPLETE KONTROL

FIXED Master and Output channels are no longer greyed-out on the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MK2 Mixer page in Logic Pro X

FIXED Level meters match the software on the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series MK2 Mixer page in Ableton Live

FIXED KOMPLETE KONTROL remembers hosted plug-ins that are missing on the system
On the effects, I'm not sure how non-hardware users make any benefit from it, unless there is a new KK FX plugin that has a useful browser. But have to say - not a single issue has been addressed since 1.0 that I've had with it. Still no resize; still no way to tell what instrument a preset is from; still no sort by library or plugin; still no search for family of libraries (such as Reaktor) only 1 or all. I still find it essentially useless, which beggars belief from a product now this old from NI.
