I have a bunch of works I did before 1.4.12, when the polyphonic music had to be done manually, without <x \\ y>. Recently I have ported a few works that used the old syntax, to use the modern < \\ > syntax instead. Though the music should be exactly equivalent, it happens that the spacing is different between the versions (and it happens that the difference is significant, e.g. one version can occupy more space than the other).

The spacing algorithm has changed a lot from 1.4 to 1.6 so you should expect to get different spacings if you compile the same file with 1.4 and 1.6. So if you compare your old output with your new output then the spacing should be changed. However if you compiled both the old and the new .ly-files with 1.6 and STILL see differences then it is weird (probably a bug), and I would like to see an example of this.
