Q: back in the 80’s when I had heat pump the exit temp was in the mid 90’s so even if you were sitting in front of the air duct, you perceived the warm air as cold – it was uncomfortable heat. Do the new systems provide a higher temp of the output air?

A: Yes. The output air temperature of my Bosch units of over 100°F. Also, that chilling effect of feeling even warm air rushing past your skin is less prevalent with modern heat pumps because they operate at much lower fan speeds (but almost continuously) rather than the on/off of the older fans. This makes the new fans much more energy efficient as well as making the heating system more comfortable.
