No, as there is no change in the set of root name servers. The set of gTLD (.com/.net/.org) nameservers has changed (g.root-servers.net => g.gtld-servers.net), but the gTLD servers don't have to be preconfigured using a "hints" file---they are found using regular DNS queries to the root servers. -- Simon.
