It's a new part of the security model. in the privilege set there is a new extended privilege to Allow Apple Events and Active X.
By default it is turned off.
Will I have any problems with those still using the Filemaker Pro 15 platform if I activate the "Allow Apple Events" extended privilege in Filemaker pro 16? Or do I need to move everyone over to 16 at the same time?
Not Sure I don't use applescript or Active X so I can't test it. Install FM 16 on one workstation and turn on that privilege. You will know quickly if it adversely affects the 15 clients
This new extended privilege is ignored on 15 and earlier. Therefore, if you want to strictly prohibit AppleScript from accessing FileMaker, you would also need to set the "Minimum version allowed to open this file" (in File Options) to "16.0"

Apart from security changes covered by PSI, nothing changed in FileMaker AppleScript, as far as I know. I think, nothing changed since version 4 or 5.
One thing to look out is if you refer to FileMaker by version number, e.g.
tell application FileMaker Pro 15
If you have Advanced version, you can create Database Design Report and search for Perform ApplesScript script steps
