After a general practice session it no longer tells me which skills I strengthened.

This is in the web version.

After completing a lesson, in the popup window, you see 2 or 3 pages. One showing how many XP you have earned today, another telling you what lesson you just completed and sometimes a third if you earned lingots.

This used to happen when strengthening (the general type, using the button in the sidebar.) But now it does not - it shows only the XP. If you want to know which skills you strengthened you have to look at the tree to see which skills are now gold (and remember which ones were weak before you started the session.)

Anyone else noticed this? Is it because of a recent update?

Lots of things seem to have changed in the last 24 hours, not that there's been any announcement about them.

After you complete a general strengthen exercise you might have strengthened none, one or several skills.

That's exactly why this feature was so useful. Now you have to check your tree to see which skills turned gold. And I know (because some did turn gold) that I strengthened them. That is how I noticed the feature had been disabled.

it is because you have probably already strengthened all your skills

I have not, but I can see the change in my tree after finishing the session (one skill has turned gold, as expected.) Its just that it doesn't tell me in the popup anymore.

I'm not sure anything's changed. Sometimes the general practice strengthens words from skills that then turn gold, sometimes it strengthens words from elsewhere.

They still turn gold, no change there. What has changed is that the popup (that also shows you progress towards your daily goal) no longer includes which skills were strengthened.

On the full web interface or on the mobile app, and if app, which one? IOS or Android?

Web. Sorry I should have included that in the question.

This feature is buggy. I don't know if they changed anything recently, but I remember doing strengthening and being told I strengthened one skill, when I noticed in the tree that I actually strengthened two. Maybe it's the same glitch again.
