I was checking the Supplementary rules of the 20th Anniversary Edition and they state that you remove the sbbot in 2. Placing a meeple, then you go to 3. Scoring a feature and score the abbot. Afterwards you score all the other festures as usual.

This sequence is clear in the latest rules of the base game. Let's see the Big Box 7 rules.

This matches what they hinted on discord: no scoring takes plce in 2. Placing a meeple. This then overrides the clarification about the abbot from 3/2015. I understand this approach will also apply to acrobats, the shepherd and fruit actions.
So, in layman's terms, how does this change the current (or what was current) understanding of interactions involving an Abbot and Acrobats?
Feel free to link me to wikicarpedia if it is already updated and explained there!

It looks like they updated box art, fixing a few bugs such as wrong distribution of  ferries tiles,  the lone pig lying down, the lone mage and witch, although the meeples could be just out of frame, which was also slightly changed , and my favorite error at the end of the river where the road joined the field :D
I wonder how many units they send out to shops with those errors, collectors, don't waste your time :D

I wonder who had the task to carefully re-place all the tiles in (mostly) the exact same places to retake the photo emoji code48]

A bunch of us pointed out some if not all of these mistakes to HiG on discord. I wonder if that is why it's changed slightly hahaha

And funny that the black meeple in the too right is now no longer in a finished city, as they've just cropped the image so you can't tell if it's finished

It's made by computer, it is not a photo  :yellow-meeple:
(the tiles would never be so perfectly aligned if it was a photo)

So the first German prints have the errors. I guess reprints will have the updates, so need to keep an eye out for them.

999 games have launched the box now as well, but very quietly and they have it listed as the same as the previous big box. Not even a separate article number or separate listing; it's the same for them

Devir said it that all Carcassonne 3.0 will be available gradually as future reprints... No big fuss about it. :o

To be fair, the rounded corners aren’t noticeable when drawing the tiles. I’m not sure if this change was made to prolong the life of the tiles. They are only very slightly rounded

I agree, and putting them side by side, I feel like the new style is ever so slightly more aesthetically pleasing, as a single tile.  I get that the gap is larger between tiles, but I think that might help those funky issues that sometimes make you wonder if diagonals are open or fields are connected.

I received v3 yesterday, so hopefully I'll get to open it an give it a whirl.
