You can get the old behaviour back by specifying "-c FORMAT_MENU=menu".

The table of contents at the top of the page serves as a main menu,
although it includes all the sections as well as the chapters.
By default a list of chapters isn't output at the start, as it would
be repetition from the table of contents.  However, if 
"-c CONTENTS_OUTPUT_LOCATION=inline" is given as an option to texi2any,
I see that it is a problem that there is no initial list of chapters.

You could add @shortcontents at the start of the document to get a list
of chapters.  Do you think that would solve the problem?
