Is there any difference between the new and old editions of the Arkham Horror as far as rules, mechanics, and play go?
Thankssauron

Yes, there are.

It gets a little more complicated...

The original Arkham Horror by Chaosium - - is a completely separate game to the new Arkham Horror by FFG.

However, I assume you're talking about the difference between the two FFG editions. Yes, there are some rules changes and card errata.

You can download the revised rulebook from the FFG site - http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ah_support.html

A summary of the changes can be found in the Dunwich Horror rules, also available from the FFG site. Generally they clarify grey areas in the rules.

The Dunwich Horror set also provides corrected versions of a couple of cards from the original set.

Cheers,
Merric

As an owner of the Chaosium edition, I would actually like to know what differences there are from the FFG edition.

I would discuss my feelings on the differences, but I haven't played either game in over two years. I want to know what other people feel the differences are.

I found the following articles:
