Basically, the new port is built with -mfloat-abi=hard, and tuned for armv7-a cpus. Should offer substantially better performance than both Debian's armel port but also than Ubuntu's armel port (as this one is softfp only). We're moving quite fast and are up to 100 packages already -the fact that we already have a hardfp karmic port helps greatly!
