So, the changes from the current version include changes to 'the user
experence' ? ie, UI changes? Are they minor? or Major? 

Is the old version still supported for security updates? 
Or are they moving to only supporting the new one?
Can the old one use the new rules? Or is it stuck with out of date
rules. 

If you did move to this version, would end users have to do anything
manually? 

I'd guess this is kinda a grey area for two reasons: 
web browsers seem to be kind of an exception to things (10.x is coming
in a RHEL update), and things that need to update off the net/rulesets
need to update to interoperate.
