Please assume good faith on the part of the developers who have made
whichever change it is that has broken the behaviour that you relied
upon in prior Debian releases, did so for well-defined reasons. It's
not fair to the developers, likely volunteers, to be described in
negative terms such as "hiding" and so on.

I don't know to where you have asked the questions that were totally
