1. The \setupnotedefinition was replaced with \setupnotation

2. Many of the \define… and \setup… commands are now auto generated
   from \installcommandhandler which generates only one setup-command
   which can be used for global (i.e. \setup…[..,..=..,..]) and local
   (i.e. \setup…[…][..,..=..,..]) settings. For backward compatibility you
   can find things like this: \let\setupnotes\setupnote

3. The argument are same as before (with a few changes)

Large parts of the code have been rewritten and the next key wasn’t added yet.
