Well, maybe not a "big difference".  But, it might be reasonable to expect
slightly different results from different versions of the code.

Feff has an option to not generate path data from paths with "too low an
amplitude".  What that means in detail depends slightly on the versions of
the program used.  And Artemis may have changed the settings it passes to
Feff as well.

You attached the input to Atoms, and the results from Feff, but not the
input to Feff.  Those are probably slightly different in the two versions.

Scattering paths that are simply reversed (Absorber-> S1 -> S2 -> Absorber
vs Absorber -> S2 -> S1 > Absorber) are equivalent.
