From my understanding, they rebalanced some of the Wonders (some were MUCH better than others) by rearranging some of the rewards and changing the material requirements for some of the better ones. Some cards were also changed to rebalance but not as significantly.

And the entire game got a visual overhaul. Cards are laid out similar to how they look in 7 Wonders Duel (which I actually prefer the new design), card artwork has all been changed but it doesn't look too different from the original, links now have a symbol like in Duel instead of the name of the card, Wonders have "day/night" artwork now instead of an "A/B" side with the same artwork on both sides, and the backs of the cards now have this really nice shiny foil.

As far as expansions, they made a second edition of the main 3 expansions too to make them fit in aesthetically with the base set. I'm not sure if some of those were rebalanced as well but I'm sure they were.

If you already have the first edition and the expansions, I don't think you need to pick up the new version, but if you don't have it then the second edition is probably a better way to start.
Great game! One of the top 100 games on BGG. Very easy to teach and gameplay moves fast once everyone gets the hang of it. Has a few expansions that really change up the game I'd suggest getting once the game starts feeling predictable.
A nice aspect of 7 Wonders is that it is very scalable, from 3 to 7 players (or even up to 9 if you have all the expansion content.) Turns are simultaneous, and in most instances* you only interact with the players to your immediate left/right, so it doesn't bog down.

I recommend getting one of the free Android/iPhone scoring apps and putting in the players' names before the game starts. It makes scoring at the end way faster. "Okay, around the table, how many point in Blue did you have?" "Tell me how many of each Green symbol you had." Then it tabulates scores and who did best in what.

I picked up several copies of the game one year at Target on Christmas clearance for $10 each and give them away to people interested in getting into board-gaming.

*some of the expansion content affects everyone at the table, or skips a player next to you, etc. Generally, we play with the Cites, Leaders, and mini-pack expansions, as well as the extra Wonder boards, but don't really care for the Babel expansion. Armada looks interesting, but again, it looks like something that would significantly slow down a relatively quick game.

What's different in the "new" version? Is it compatible with expansions?

Mostly artwork. Also, the upgrade for buildings has been changed to match that of 7 Wonders Duel to use symbols instead of names, which I really prefer. I'm not sure on expansions.

I really like 7 Wonders, but I will say that I've hardly played it since getting Sushi Go. The two games are really similar in terms of game play. 7 Wonders is "deeper" than Sushi Go, but Sushi Go is way more accessible and easy to teach to beginners. Sushi Go Party Pack is usually $20 or so.

I love playing this game because who you play with affects the outcome, super easy concept but hard to master because they are so many ways to score points and win.

One of the few games I didn't like. Game play was extremely random, to the point that strategy felt all but pointless. About the only thing that really made a difference was the starting conditions. Might as well just roll dice and decide a winner IMO.
