Same here.

I'd consider it a regression as well, for the same reason.

I'd like to see them continue on -d-a.  There are times when I just
can't handle -devel and unsub completely.  They really don't add up to
much traffic, and the "new entries only" change should help bring back
some people to doing regular reviews that they had developed a
resistance to doing due to having to wade through too many old entries
to see the new ones.
