Same brand, same filter (I hope). The old one I bought in CA the new one in IL. It’s not the angle. Went from 5-3/8 to 5-1/8.

Sigh. If you want to buy a pound of coffee, it will need to be two "one pound" bags. Product shrinkage has been going on for 20 or 30 years.

Only way to know for sure if the media changed is to cut them open.

I know the end caps have changed, I think they switched manufacturers.

Although I did not take a picture of the top, the drain holes went from round to elliptical and the element inside was a different color(?). The filter itself fit fine.

It's hard to tell, but it looks like the diameter is slightly larger on the new one.
(Going by the depth of the flat spots for the filter wrench)
The shorter one would only need ~.088" more diameter to have the same capacity.
