N had not the same function. A starts a way, N sets a node. To set one
node now, you have to do the things you mention. To set one note before
you only had to select N and click once.
In any case: it is more work. Yes, I'm nitpicking, but nitpicking is
easy when there is no guide or releasenotes where this is mentioned.

If you are not using those other keys, you are not aware of them. I
haven't read anywhere in releasenotes that certain shortcuts were dropped.
I must have also missed all those discussions about it on this list
because I can't remember any.
