The new RPM installed a new crontab, and saved the old one as crontab.rpmsave. This is common when the new version changed the configuration file format, and you have made changes to the old version's configuration file. This lets you transfer the information to the new format, if you need it. (.rpmsave = backup of old configuration, new file used. .rpmnew = new configuration file, old file still being used.)
