The task run time hasn't changed from 0.21/0.22. But it has changed if
you compare with 0.20, the new runtime has a lot of performance
improvements and is expected to be better with all the optimizations.
To answer your question, yes your 'model' shouldn't need any changes.

Shuffle used to be part of the TaskTracker, it is now in the NM.
Except that, there isn't much difference that should affect you.
