Code changes after Upgrade: PDF export not working

We have just upgraded from Confluence Server version 4.3.7 to version 6.13.20.

The problem is this:
With the new version (and the changes that come with it) the PDF export does not work like before.

What I recognized so far:

  • some fonts are not loaded and replaced with others, making headlines look cluttered
  • the info, note and warning macro looks different, both on the wiki pages and on the exported PDF pages
  • some technical stuff like CSS programming is not working like before, resulting in some headlines not being hidden, the numbering of headlines being mixed up

I guess these problems are a combination of different things:

  • Changes in the underlying wiki HTM code or the CSS standard file
  • Something missing, something changed when trying to load extra fonts in the CSS stylesheet

Is there an overview of such things, of everything that has changed from version x to y, changes in the HTML code, changes in the standard CSS file, technical changes of other kinds and so on?

Has this changed at some point (somewhere between version 3.xx and
