Each mirror stores version history, thus allowing either to update from any existing mirror or to create a local mirror.
Updates are faster
The update tool selects the fastest mirror.
Update configuration defaults to parallel fetching and installation.
Revdep-rebuild will not be called by cl-update unless enabled explicitly.
A higher level of testing
All binaries are tested on the testing mirror before being committed to the master.
Less traffic consumption
Portage will not be synchronized if no updates are available.
2. Common binary repos
Distribution profiles were unified. You are free to choose between three brand new flavours, each with USE flags adapted to different needs. Over 2500 popular packages come as binaries.
3. New Calculate Utilities 3.4
System build tools were completely rewritten:
Calculate Console comes with a GUI mode.
Overlayfs support was added for fast deployment.
A list of binary mirrors can from now on be used for update.
Binaries are fetched under a new algorithm.
Multiboot Flash creation is supported.
4. Both stable and testing kernels are provided.
