Yes.  The key change is that lists are identified by their posting address (a.k.a. List-Post, a.k.a. fully-qualified list name), e.g. foo at bar.com and foo at baz.org.  There's no place now where the list is identified internally as just 'foo'.

'bin/mailman create' is the command in MM3 to create new mailing lists.  You have to configure Mailman to know about the domain before you can create a mailing list in that domain, but you can take a shortcut by adding the -d option to that command.
