I see this question was partially answered on B&CG for scoring differences between the 3 versions of Carcassonne. Are there any other differences?

Besides the scoring differences listed, there is also the "youngest player" goes first rule in 1st. Edition. For a list of all differences between editions, see this excellent annotated rules list and FAQ that covers the Basic Game and 11 expansions.
