One change that comes to mind is the change from Copyright: to License:. I believe there were some changes in the default build macros as well, but I am not sure. Was the -F (freshen) option part of RPM when the book was written? I am trying to remember when it was added. I also have vague memories about changes in librpm along the way, but they do not impact the rpm user interface to the libraries.
