Yes, basically in order to support/make visible the following

  - multiple masters + access to some T1 tables for the formats
    that support them.

  - access to auto-hinting global data (in order to be able to
    cache it outside of the engine, in order to avoid re-compute
    it each time a face is re-opened).

  - a few other internal changes (mainly due to the auto-hinter),
    like the ability to pass additional parameters to a font driver
    when calling FT_Open_Face..

and a few other things. There will be nothing dramatic however..
