Please note that it is different enough to not be backwards compatible.
This can pose some problems.  However the changes are as minimal as I
could make them:

Queue->Pipe (this will affect anyone expecting a Queue)
FixedSizeQueue->deleted (same effect can be done with a default Pipe)
MultiCastSink->fixed (it actually works as advertised)
LossyMultiCastSink->deleted (it never worked properly)

The core interfaces have not changed as much as possible, so besides a
few renamings, there should not be any major problems upgrading.
However, the code to set up an ThreadManager is currently changing.
I may recommend waiting until I finish what I am trying to do before
bringing it back to Excalibur land.  The CommandManager will likely
also be fit with a hearty refactoring, but that can wait until after
a move back.
