    They've changed it in this release:

    • Jump on spacebar “down”: When we first implemented jump in our game we did not want players constantly “bunny hopping” during combat so we implemented various solutions like the “stillness bonus.” We also put in “charged jumping” where the longer you held down the spacebar the bigger your jump. This meant that the actual trigger for the jump action became releasing the spacebar versus the more traditional pressing the spacebar down. This counterintuitive interface choice has since cost us new players while not actually discouraging combat jumping. So we have now made the default jump action triggered when you press down on the spacebar. The height of this jump is the maximum height at which you would have done a fully “charged” jump in the old system. For those who were accustomed to the old method we have preserved that as an option in the Options menu. You can read more about this change in Chris’s blog.

    It appears as if the default was altered between 763 and 764. Agree read the statement, I was able to charge jumps automagically prior to 764.
