[Fluxx] Zombie Fluxx reprint?

Last night, I noticed that my FLGS had some new copies of Zombie Fluxx on the shelf. The new "Looney Bin" box has replaced the older tuckbox, and the cover sported the Origins Award logo. So apparently there's been another print run.

But what I really want to know is: has any of the card text changed? The Zombie Fluxx FAQ on the Rabbit Wiki is a long one, and I've been holding out for a ZF edition that has been tweaked to address most of the ambiguity. Is this the printing I've been waiting for?

I like both your ideas. I did have some ideas and was working on a
mega-flux project. Lately though it has been all I can do to play a
game of Python or Zombie Fluxx as it was designed.

Back in the old days before there was the eco, family and other
specifically designed decks I think the idea was more appealing. It
was a matter of keeping a card that had been dropped like doghnuts or
something like that. No problem.

Lately I have been feeling like Mega-Fluxx is almost re-inventing the
game. A game that I think is very well designed. Who am I to mess with

I still have my semi-mega deck but when I play it is met with mixed results.
