This ROM is a combined work of all members of KangXperiaProject.
KangXperiaProject is our noob-ish project to build AOKP (not port) from sources for Xperia line of phones, as Xperia devices are not supported officially by AOKP officially as of yet.
Members of KangXperiaProject are :
Supervenom , Championswimmer, Stelios97, Daveee10, Pikpok
(We are not any great developers, we use sources from CM team, AOKP team, and Freexperia Team)
KangXperiaProject ROMs contain some added unofficial features in addition to AOKP.
You can find lots of themes from GummyROM and a better AlarmClock by Achep.
More devs willing to work are welcome. It will be easier to maintain more devices then
AOKP has hundreds of awesome features added over AOSP and CM9
a list can be found here
In general, what is different in AOKP is that all special settings are placed under "ROM control" and not mixed under settings as in CM9
Also some very user friendly features are provided, like on screen buttons can be switched on and off using a toggle, we can switch on the torch using power button long press and many such features.
Also lockscreen, task manager, and many aspects can be customized a lot.
The official AOKP changelog can be found here
Unofficial Changelog for KXP is found here on post #3
