The new edition tidies the rules up in some areas, and makes them somewhat more playable, with more diverse characters possible. This time they've actually allowed for combat medics who can survive a fight, for example. If I use it I'll probably use the updated rules in the CP2020 setting, though. The equipment lists are a straight rehash of the last edition, and has a lot of the same problems. Where are the small-calibre high velocity guns with huge magazine space that are probably where weapons evolution's heading? Also, the book is full of links to undeveloped sections of the R. Talsorian website.
