Are you sure you're not subscribed to the "TeX on Mac OS X" mailing  
list, or whatever it's called? :) I looked for something like your  
email in the subscribers list and didn't see anything similar.

The MacTeX list is very low traffic and deals primary with new  
versions of TeX software that need testing or whatever.

I haven't looked into the details but I'm pretty sure the syntax would  
be similar if not identical. One minor change is that the sync file is  
now gz-compressed to save some bytes. Otherwise, I suspect there might  
be other minimal changes resulting from the fact that the engine  
itself is generating this data rather than LaTeX macros.

Hope this helps,
