Yes!  The page Andy posted earlier summaries the changes.  Let me give
you the details on the textual changes, to reassure you:

1. Action: Eaten by Zombies!  The phrase "(unless no one has a
Zombie)" is added at the end, to clarify that if no one has a Zombie,
then no Keepers get eaten.

2. Action: Hey, Over Here!  After "Choose a player", the words "who
has one or more Zombies" is added.  Probably done to forbid players
from calling all the Zombies from a player who has none.

3. Goal: I Alone Survived - A "no Friends" icon is added to the other
3 icons, to visually reinforce a winning condition people often

4. New Rule: Adrenaline Bonus - "a Zombie" is changed to "any
Zombies", to clarify that you get the bonus with one or more Zombies,
not just one.

5. New Rule: Dead Friends - After "All Friend Keepers", the words "in
play" are added, to clarify that only Friends on the table are
Creepers -- those in hand are not.

6. In ZF1.0, the cards often used "Zombie" and "Creeper" synonymously.
 This has been cleared up in several cards to remove unintended
implications, as follows:
"Creepers" to "Zombie Creepers" - Dead Friends, No Zombies, Zombie
Season, Zombie Victory
"Zombies" to "Creepers" - Hey Over Here!, Let's Shamble!

I assume that any unchanged "Creeper" or "Zombie" terms are intended that way.

In short, these changes answer many of the questions and ambiguities
in the ZF FAQ.  Plus, you get a perfect Larry!  (No ragged edges,
drippy letters and color bar, same cardstock as the others.)  Get it!
