The Chaos Calmer's improved security comes with support for hardened builds and support for Jails. The improved networking is for supporting many new 3G/4G models, 464XLAT support, improved support for self-managing networks, better multi-core handling of the network stack, improved DNSSEC support, and added support for smart queue management. Platform/driver work on OpenWRT 15.05 RC1 includes support for the Raspberry Pi 2.
