Since the latest update of Lightroom, there is no more difference between saturation and vibrance. Has anybody else noticed that ?

I haven't noticed and it isn't true on my Mac with Lightroom Classic. Here's the same image with two settings. On the left Vibrance=100 and Saturation=0, on the right Vibrance=0 and Saturation=100. Every other setting is the same.

I think you'll notice a significant difference in Caucasian skin tones and images that have already saturated colors.  Left image has Vibrance =100, Saturation=0.  Right image has Vibrance=0, Stauration=100.  Not only look at skin tones but also yellow curtains in the background

While there may be subtle differences in some landscape images, the difference is most noticeable in portraits.
