File size and ms:ss ratio decrease when upgrading LAME, Is LAME 3.99.5 worse than 3.98.2?

I just upgraded from LAME 3.98.2 to 3.99.5. Using "-V 2 -q 2" I compared encodes from the old and new versions. Files from the new version were smaller. They also had less ms (mid-side stereo) frames, which could mean less efficient stereo compression due to encoding two separate channels and not taking advantage of things in common.

Is there a decrease in audio quality, or has LAME improved so much that it can maintain or improve quality despite this? Should I be using a particular recommended LAME version?

Thanks for the replies! It's nice to know that the size decrease is due to an improvement. I will continue using 3.99.5 and not worry about the differences I observed.
