Mac OS X

Close, minimize, and maximize are now close, minimize, and full screen, eliminating the extra full-screen control and consolidating the window controls in one place. Streamlining these and other elements of the interface means you can navigate the desktop more efficiently.

OS X' idea of "maximise" was "some random window resizing nobody really used anyway", so I'm glad Apple finally replaced it with something else. Too bad OS X' fullscreen view is way too disruptive for my tastes to be of any practical use.

You can option-click the green button (old behavior to get Maximize) and double-click the window title bar to Zoom.

I wouldn't be surprised if they provide a preference for the behavior, if there is a Terminal switch to reverse the behavior, or if any number of utilities to modify various system tweaks will not immediately be available.

But I'm sure you installed the beta yesterday and tested it out and were aware that the optional behavior is still there, even in a product that will not be finished for 2-4 months.
