Strange behaviour with File Status/Working copy since last update

The recent update to SourceTree has changed the way the File Status/Working Copy section works.

Initially, I thought no longer do you get the split panel between stage and unstaged changes. It appeared that there were just tick boxes to relate to staged/unstaged. This makes it very hard when trying to visualise the changes.

HOWEVER, then I noticed that if I choose some random lines in one of the files, and I said "Stage Selected Lines" then magically the split panel returned and now I have my staged files at the top, and unstaged files at the bottom.

What? So did anything change? Or did I miss a config setting somewhere? Seems very odd.
