I updated before going to bed last night while working on a project that requires a perspective grid.  I had been using the polygon tool and creating a star pattern that mimics a vanishing point.  I learned this from various youtube tutorials.  

When I opened the app this morning to tried to create said star, the options for paths changed during the update and for the life of me I cannot seem to make the star I wanted.  Before you'd make sure the polygon tool was selected, shape, no fill, 1pt stroke, click on path options and click on 'star', indent sides by 99% and add 100 sides to the star and drag out from the horizon line.  

I tried to work with the settings available but instead I keep getting a circle with 100 small divots like one of those scholastic award stickers on books.  Is anyone else having this issue after the update?

It look like Adobe change the UI from a check box and a percemtage   to a just a ratio percent. Where 100% is equal to an un-checked star box

For anyone still working on this and trying for that vanishing point, JJMack pointed out that its now inverse for the % in the star ratio.

Before you would change the ratio to 99% and select the Star checkbox.

Now you just enter 1% in the Star Ratio value with the same 100 sides.
