Just for starters, I created three YouTube videos on the Blender 2.5 user

Blender 2.5 Sneak Preview <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj06t-R0Wcs>

Blender 2.5 User Preferences <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN0tWrsW0So>

Blender 2.5 Tools Menu <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-vCp3ZC19Q>

Hope these help.
