Is it me or do the new board sections not have the jigsaw bit on them?

Well, it wouldn't surprise me if the boarding pods and elevator don't use the jigsaw sections. Whatever other board sections it adds though almost certainly use the jigsaw connections.

I think it has flat end pieces that jigsaw to the existing tunnel sections. The boarding torpedoes have a ramp that sit over the join between the torpedo and the board.

I just unboxed a 2009 copy and I can't see how they could even fit another piece of paper into that box much less another sheet of tiles.

Are the new tiles a bit thinner or something?

Might be wrong. But the shape of the box in the photos looks a little different? Could be they deepened the box a fraction?

Or maybee they just stuff the tiles and stuff in the old box style and it just doesnt close completely?

You'll know soon enough.

I haven't noticed anyone comment on this on the interweb, but the actual design of the box and booklets looks a little different to the 2009 edition, no? Thus they might be entirely new boxes.

they use the same art assets, but the production graphics are different. They'd need new print files for the books anyway while adding the extra missions.
From what I've seen the extra room has jigsaw. The lift is in three parts, the lift itself (flat join) and two single-space corridor sections that are jigsawed on one end, flat on the other.. The boarding torpedoes are flat as they buttress-up to the outside of the board, with the "boarding ramp" piece over the boarder.
