There are some changes to the two client applications as well, and since the update is free to anyone running Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.x, it's worth the 15.2 MB download. [ACE]

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.
