After browsing through the manual I noticed they are still different. To what extent I don't know. Maybe someone can fill in what the differences are.
In CS4 the differences were mainly a bunch of filters and transitions missing for MAC (Most of which nobody uses). It might be easier to investigate the ones you are specifically interested in.
Dowload the pdf of the help file. Do a "find all" for "windows only." Many are not the sort of differences you are asking about, but it is instructive.

Incorrect. THe mac version of Premiere CS4 was a total disappointment, missing MANY basic features, AND basic exporting to QT AND
the VAST MAJORITY of transitions and filters which were offered on the PC, and laughable in comparison to FCP. SUre transitions are cheesy, but thanks Adobe for deciding what I want to use for me.
After Effects was about the only thing worth owning in Production Premium CS4 and while I do like that program a lot, Premiere was
a real disappointment and Encore was a total disaster, as in crashed constantly and burnt zero DVDs correctly. I'm so tired of the Adobe forums being a cover-up for their devs laziness but there are other places to trumpet the defects of Adobe. I would suggest the company offer CS5 as a FREE upgrade to those mac users that were DELIBERATELY cheated in CS4.
Here is the CS4 list of "missing" Effects and Transitions: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/460313?tstart=1470
Now, it's time for you to come clean, Curt. We feel that you have more than used up your allocation of Page Turn Transitions...
Thanks for all the responses. I have found Encore CS4 to be very good (apart from issues using the Party Menu HD template as a basis for creating my own menus - now use my own created in PS CS3) for creating both DVD and BD discs. AECS4 I use a lot and really like.
PPro CS4 I have not used much because of the lack of third party support (particularly Boris FX products) and therefore the lack of some features is more of an issue. I hope this will change in CS5.

There is a bit of confusion here. The Party Menu is the Library Asset that shows up by default. One does not need to use it for anything. As Encore will remember the last Library folder opened, just navigate to maybe your personal Menus folder, if you created one, and that will be what is open in Library.
