Most of the changes applied between major releases are meant to get a menu more semantically accurate, thinking on name & place each option as any regular user should expect to find them, especially the novices.
I agree it's important to be cautious on changing things and think on people that is already used to a particular arrange, but it's equally important to improve and be coherent in order to make it easier to everybody. So, each change has a reason to be there. For example, changing "Blog settings" (v4.x) to "Blogs" (v5.0.x) and then to "Structure" (v5.1.x & v5.2.x), is just looking for a smooth movement on the way as b2evo is presented to the public, from a Blog platform to a platform able to manage several kind of contents. So, the final objective would be to transform the Blog concept into a Collections concept.
Also core functions shouldnt be completely replaced IMO, like the one used to retrieve attachments etc.
I can't find that feature (I meet b2evo on v5.x), if you give me more details about it, maybe I could trail it and figure out what happend.
