While the 9.0.3 update is largely about dealing with some existing issues when using Wacom tablets with Photoshop Elements, a number of other small changes were introduced. Based on the feedback of some customers, the default behavior of opening new documents was changed so that they always open as tabbed, even when floating windows are enabled.

We are not above reverting to the original behavior. Let us know your preferences on the subject.
