No, actually, it didn't.  The DISPLAY name of the service changed as you
mentioned, but the service itself still has the same name it always had:
"TransarcAFSDaemon" for the client and "TransarcAFSServer" for the BOS
control service.  Since this isn't IBM's version, it's probably good it
changed.  Technically, we should probably change the service name since
Transarc doesn't make this version, either, but this is referenced in far
too many places to do this easily.  Additionally, some people may have other
software that references the service name.

The default install location changed.  You can change it to any other
location if you like.  And if you do an upgrade, it is supposed to install
in the same location where the previous version was installed.

Yes, it has.  And it is still changing as 1.3.x develops...

I would imagine there are a number of other changes as well, but I have lost
