The features that stick out most are Pacman and ABS (Arch Build System). Pacman allows you to install, upgrade, and remove binary packages locally as well as install from package repositories. It does simple dependency resolution and also allows you to search packages for what files were installed and what package a file belongs to. ABS is like BSD ports. You cvsup the latest current and unofficial buildscripts (or maybe another development branch if you're so inclined). The build scripts make building and compiling a snap.
