The changes are adressed here
http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/whatsnew.html . The only
incompatible changes I am aware of are the renamed/removed macros.

I do not know of any nagios2-config -> nagios3-config document.

For bigger environments i would suggest a test-installation anyway
before updating. Certainly this update will not go without modifying
