The main difference is the gamma handling.

In version 3.6.x, it was common to use an assumed_gamma of 2.2.
In version 3.7, you are encouraged to use assumed_gamma 1.

Adding #version 3.6; will force the use of the version 3.6.x conventions.
Adding #version 3.7; will use the new conventions.

In version 3.6.x, the default output file format was .BMP under Windows 
and .IMG under Mac OS. It's now .PNG for all platforms.
