If this is what I think it is, I would describe it as having (or rather, having restored) the ability to intersperse email replies between bits of quoted text.
This used to be the default behavior, but as of now (v. 15.24/160709) if I "reply", I can only type before or after the quoted text -- any attempt to insert a reply in the middle of the quoted text (which used to be possible using return key to get a new line) results in it appearing quoted.
I would prefer to have control over how the quoted text is displayed (indented, colored, different font, ">" or other character prepended, etc.) but have my normal composing options used for my reply, whether or not it is "within" a quoted block.
