I think there is some free upgrade policy. In general the old font
should work ok given that one can live with the (current) inaccuracies
(ance it's done there will be an article about the improvemnets that
clarifies things).

We already concluded long ago that the suite of math fonts is somewhat
inconsistent (between and within fonts). We try to deal with that as
good as possible and believe that we have found the right mixed
approach. If needed we can catch averythign in the goodie files but we
try to minimize it so once this is all settled down, we can improve
specific font related issues based on {\em realistic} user mwe's as we go.

Concerning large operators .. it worked before so ... the main reason
why in e.g. euler it failed was a configuration option (euler fonts will
be fixed too) which is a side effect of more advanced script anchoring
in lmtx.

some mp->tex interfacing macros were upgraded but that should not really
matter much so i need an example of what goes wrong (quite some month
ago we fixed some left/right page related interfacing but that should
not affect single sided documents)
