In the layers panel, Photoshop CC 2015 made dropping a layer in a group go to the top, not the bottom. While I find this generally more intuitive, why not make shift + drop revert to the old behavior letting the user send the layer to the bottom of the group. This is helpful when adding background layers to groups.

i think it's because Adobe believes that no one ever needs to drop a layer to the bottom of a group, even though they believed that to be true for all users since the introduction of layer groups...
