VST3 folders instead of files?

Did 7.0.6 switch to always build VST3 as folders instead of files? Is there any way to disable this and use the old style? What is compatibility like with DAWs and folder style VST3?

The single file dll is deprecated:

I am not aware of a switch to opt-out though. I guess it’s best to embrace it
