And according to the press release: 
|  * Move of packages' long descriptions into a separate "translated 
|    package list", which will facilitate their translation and also 
|    provide a smaller footprint for embedded systems thanks to smaller 
|    Packages files.
|  * Better integration of debtags, a system to tag packages with multiple
|    attributes for easier package selection
|  * Discard and rebuild of binary packages uploaded by maintainers, 
|    leaving only packages build in a controlled environment
