Info take step 1 before or after changes on May 11th 2015?

Basically picking my test date now and I can choose either option. Are these changes they are making going to make a real difference? The number of questions doesn't really worry me (46-->44), it's the possibility of new weird questions about topics I've never seen.

I heard something about quality and safety science....where would I read that?
Or maybe it would be better to take the new version and just get curved with everyone else (just have to wait till july for scores)

I've looked around, but haven't seen much discussion about this.
So if anyone can help me out with any reasons to pick either scheduling option I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
