It can't be much better than the "old" 75-300.

I have the 75-300. It is amazing. Very small and light for its range, and very good image quality. I had ordered the black one and received the silver one by mistake but after taking a few initial test shots I was so thrilled with my copy that I kept it. Once you have a really good copy of a lens, never give it up!

So I don't know what kind of improvement there should be in the 75-300. The only thing that could really be improved was the max aperture but that has stayed the same.

Frankly, I do not understand why Olympus is coming out with a revised 75-300 lens while we are all waiting for a 12-60 f/2.8-4 for m43 to be introduced... a new 75-300 we could easily live without but a 12-60 is what we really badly need.
