Below seems to be a feature that will be coming up soon.
It marks unread mail with a vertical blue bar. As a result it increases the line spacing.
Not sure I will be happy about it and hopefully it can be disabled.
As for me: unread mail marked in bold is good enough.
(Indeed, there is no question here, just info, FWIW)
