The import element "RawData" preserves the original strings in the CSV file, resulting in faster imports without any data interpretation for large files.
The import elements "RowCount" and "MaxColumnCount" can be used to efficiently determine the dimensions of a CSV or TSV file.
Visualizing CSV and TSV data is much simpler with the new "Dataset" import element. Combined with the "HeaderLines" option, you can even import complicated nested data structures exported with the Wolfram Language.
Accessing parts of a CSV or TSV file is more efficient and now supports any type of Span as a part specification.
