To revert to the legacy transform behavior, do the following:

1.    Use Notepad (Windows) or a text editor on Mac OS to create a plain text file (.txt).

2.    Type the text below in the text file:
TransformProportionalScale 0

3.    Save the file as "PSUserConfig.txt" to your Photoshop settings folder:

·         Windows: [Installation Drive]:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings\

·         macOS: //Users/[User Name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CC 2019 Settings/

This was posted by an MVP, but I can’t find the original post.

It works!

This workaround does not solve the new and very, VERY annoying auto-commit-issue ( = clicking outside the transform-frame commits the scaling/rotation)! This workaround only "unconstrains". 
While I'd love to have most layer-scalings to proportionally transform without using the Shift-key, the way Adobe did it in CC 2019 is the worst thinkable solution ever! All I always wanted was the "chain-link-symbol" in the option bar of »Free transform« to be "sticky" (it should remember its last state that I have chosen). Currently in CC 2019 that button has no function at all and only annoys every user ... A very, very sad story ...
