New WHOIS privacy?

Hi, I've noticed that there seems to be a new basic privacy feature on WHOIS that hides the contact email. I read in the privacy FAQ that there is going to be a new privacy update on July 1 but it seems that the basic privacy has been implemented on some domains for a few months now.

 

I know how to opt out of the basic privacy option so I'm okay with that, but I was wondering if there was any kind of recent article/blog/email about the basic privacy feature that goes into more detail about its usage?
