There are two major critical issues on the new Photoshop CC 2019
1. Blending mode
Following blending modes' results are different than previous versions
Color Burn, Color, Darker Color, Hard Mix, Hue, Lighter Color, Luminosity, Vivid light

I tried enabling "Preferences -> Performance -> "Legacy Compositing", but Hard Mix, Vivid Color, Color Burn Blending modes still get different result.


2. Free transform (Ctrl+T)
The object ratio is not locked with holding a Shift key on free transform mode

just to be 100% sure
are:
1) opacity
2) fill
3) color profiles and color settings
4) proof setup & proof preview
5) color mode
6) bits per channel
...same for both documents?

Yikes.  

Your sample image is the same file viewed in each version of PS, right?

Yikes.  (Oh, I said that already, didn't I?)

I've installed CC2019 and have played with a few of the new features, but have been using CC2018 for pretty much everything.

“The object ratio is not locked with holding a Shift key on free transform mode”
The object ratio is now locked by default. Holding the shift key unlocks it. There are numerous discussions on this change.

Hi Kevin. For the color issue - the different results could be due to a Color Profile mismatch. Looking at the sample you provided, the image tested in CS2018 does not show the information at the bottom of the image window. 
You might want to set both PSD versions to the same Default Color Profile, matching the Color Profile of your sample image. Then redo the test.

I'm testing this and can't reproduce... which color space is your image in? sRGB? AdobeRGB?

I know there's an issue with the Color blend mode which can be fixed by toggling the Legacy Compositing in the Prefs/Performance, but all the other modes are supposed to be working.

Two problems i see are you need to restart photoshop after checking Legacy Compositing and you need to have your images at 100% view (actual pixels) to see the true results of blending modes.
