-Jets are taller or shorter to provide different air intake ratios
-heater tube is larger then older
-stamped legs upgrade from rolled legs
-larger legs to support larger pots
-legs are part of stove so they do not fall apart when jet(fuel line removed)
-legs have stops rather then difficult detends like old version.

Long story short I used to have a brunton nova till the burner snapped.
Great stove only issue is its very difficult to make is simmer or requires a great deal of work. Other down fall is the plastic pump but if you handle it with care it works fine. Obviously msr went this route for weight savings.
-huge BTU output
-very difficult to simmer
-noise level but less then some other stoves (dragonfly)
-pump is plastic
-can't flip fuel bottle (easily) to burn fuel in line
