Old regulation:
(2) A pilot shall not act as PIC of an aircraft, or SIC of an aircraft required to be crewed by more than one pilot, carrying passengers by night, unless the pilot has personally, within the 90 days immediately preceding the flight, carried out at least three take-offs and three landings by night in the same class or, if a type rating is required, type or variant of aeroplane, and in the case of a helicopter three circuits including three take-offs and three landings in the same type of helicopter as that in which such flight is to be undertaken. The landings required by this subregulation may be completed in an FSTD approved for the purpose. In the case of a tail-wheel aeroplane, each landing shall be to a full-stop.
So, extended to include cargo flights, but reduced to only one take off + landing in 90 days, removed type requirement, and removed requirement for co-pilot to be night-recent. Also exempted pilots with an IR.

So, pretty much everything changed.

OK, that all seems to make sense, and from a practical point of view, looks like a welcome simplification and improvement, not?

It now makes sense. A Instrument rating is a far higher standard than a night rating. Having said that it is still the Pilots responsibility to ensure he/she
Complies with the IF rating requirements.
Common Sense prevails at last :D
