Nftables, is a kernel implementation like iptables designed to improve its predecessors short-comings to provide a more flexible usage.
The kernel update of 3.13 is up and there is this article.
nftables provides backwards compatibility with iptables, but it won't be fully featured until a future release.
I wonder if someone would put a light how would that affect Arch architecture after update?
P.S: Not sure if arch discussion or GNU?

Unless you actually want to use/test nftables, I don't think that this will change anything for the time being. You can continue to use iptables as you did before.
Edit: By the way...
% pacman -Ss nftables community-testing/nftables 0.099-1 Netfilter nftables userspace tools
