Is there any difference between this and the other SS 4.4.4 that's been here for a while other than not having to flash the 4.4.3>4.4.4 update and having Xposed/SELinux/others built in?

I'm not a SafeStrap user but I've been using Dan's ROM since January, it's rock solid and possibly the best GE (or GPE) ROM out there.

I'm glad someone ported it for SafeStrap users so they can enjoy other things than TouchWiz based ROMs.
