To my knowledge there hasnt been any massive changes to keyboard shortcuts. As
the menus are currently under going quite a bit of changes, unfortunately menu
accelerators will also be affected by these changes, primarily to limit having
the same accelerator for multiple entries, but I try to limit these changes as
much as possible, atleast in english.

You can change the accelerators in Tools > Customize > Menu and then rename the
command and add a '~' before the character that should have the accelerator.

We do notice this issue (e.g. bug 94865) and have individuals who volunteer
with libreoffice who are accelerator users.

As stated above we do try as much as possible not to change accelerators as
much as possible. If you find any particular accelerator in a menu that you
think should be changed back, please file a bug report for it.
