USB device file names changed? /dev/ttyUSB* now /dev/usbdev*

A recent update for Fedora 8 seems to have changed some of the USB device 
file naming conventions. I discovered this when my custom udev rule for my 
PDA device no longer worked properly when the rule was based on linking to 
ttyUSB*.  It seems that the familiar /dev/ttyUSB* device filename now has 
changed to several /dev/usbdev* files.  Can anyone confirm that this is 
now the case?
