At first I thought it was somehow talking about "bytecode that is new" in general, e.g. classfiles that were compiled recently could be "new" in some sense. Is there some way to refer specifically to bytecode instructions?

Haha, yeah, 'new' is monospaced, but it's so short that the font change is subtle. Changed to "the opcode 'new'", which is hopefully a little less ambiguous.
