Looks OK to me except for this one:

o History file format is incompatible with versions older than 3.0.6,
but this should only affect people who try to share history files
between the two versions -- 4.0 can read the old format, 3.0.6 and
later can read the new format. Just beware of INC_APPEND_HISTORY,
which could conceivably mix the two.
o Default compctl completions have been removed for some builtin
commands. Either use the new compinit-derived system, use the
improved compctls from Misc/compctl-examples, or restore these

There are some other incompatibilities with versions prior to 3.0.6 (this
is from the 3.0.8 Etc/NEWS file):
o whitespace between words is ignored in history searches.
o nested parameter substitutions require braces (this was always the
documented behavior, but previous parsers didn't enforce it).
o `typeset +f' and `functions +' output the names (only) of functions.
o `foo=bar >&file' is a redirection, not a NULLCMD.
o ERREXIT behavior is now consistent with newer Bourne-like shells,
e.g. with respect to `if' tests that fail.
If there are any other not-backwards-compatible changes, they aren't ones
that affected my .zshrc et al. files, so I didn't keep track of them ...
