Hans can give a more authoritative answer, of course, but as a  
provisional one: no, the command name hasn't changed, you don't need  
to worry. The way ConTeXt is organized is that the binary texexec  
(which resides in texmf/ARCH/bin/) is just a small shell-script, a  
stub, that calls the real script in turn. This has been texexec.pl  
(in texmf/scripts/context/perl/), but you can of course modify it so  
it runs another script. Hans has been toying with ruby lately, so we  
now have texmf/scripts/ruby/newtexexec.rb which, I suppose, will  
replace the "old" texexec in due time. But as you have seen, it's not  
yet quite ready for prime time, it's still missing a few features (I  
don't think it can post-process pdf-files yet) and has a few buglets...

So relax and vatch das blinkenlight!

All best
