Just a guess, perhaps better than a guess - but I would say the Compressor jacket would compare to the warmth of between a 200 - 300 weight fleece. The Compressor excels in packability, wind resistance and low weight. The fit of this years' jacket seems to be a little different, still very close, but perhaps not quite as trim fitting.. but, I think the warmth would be about the same to last years' model in Primaloft Eco. I believe the face fabric is tougher (15D to 20D) this year as well.
