I see the release announcement mentions GNC_DOC_PATH rather than GNC_DOC_DIR. This variable is indeed still used but it's not a replacement for GNC_DOT_DIR. I will update the release announcement. The proper replacement is GNC_DATA_HOME.

Note that gnucash will not migrate any of your metadata (saved reports, open tabs in your files, stylesheets) if you were using GNC_DOT_DIR with gnucash 2.x. I think this is how it should be, but in order to continue to use it in 3.0 you'll have to set GNC_DATA_HOME instead to point at the same directory. Also note that as of gnucash 3.0 you can create a file named 'environment.local' next to the environment file in which you can set variables like GNC_DATA_HOME or AQBANKING_HOME. This file will never be overwritten by gnucash (or the gnucash installer).
