Changing the default calculations for gradients is something that can be overlooked on the surface, however can provide pretty drastic changes in results. The updated perceptual interpolation method does provide a more aesthetically pleasing result than the classic method and is an update worth having, however I would’ve been fine with just linear being the default method. This would’ve given consistency across the different programs and makes me wonder about perceptual interpolation in Illustrator. Either way this is an update worth mentioning because the original gradient system was poor and needed an update.
