this is not entirely correct.

if you use a font-size of "8", then the sizes stay (mostly?) the same.
if you use a font-size of "32", the a toggle will have a size of "49" 
instead of 15.

that is: the default size of the iemguis now adapts to the default size 
of the rest of the canvas. toggles and hsliders will now have the same 
default height as an ordinary object box.

in the *default* look.
the iemguis store their absolute sizes, so if you open an old patch, it 
will still have those tiny sliders.

well, it was meant to be a bugfix release, but was upgraded to a "major" 
release because the changes were too big for a simple bugfix release.
(since Pd doesn't really use the "major" version number, the "minor" 
version number is bumped for a major release)

in any case, there have been plenty of changes to the iemguis, see e.g. 

and yes: some of it should probably be mentioned in the release notes.
