Dropdown with Default now showing as blank ?

I know there are lots of queries around how to make a dropdown have blank as the default.  My question is the opposite !!  I was quite happy with no blank !  however just wondering if something has changed in powerapps recently because my dropdowns all now show blank as default ??  This is now causing me problems because I had hidden items based on the first drop down choice showing.., I can fix them but it's a bit of a pain and just wondering is this just a quirke with mine of some kind?  (I've shut down, republished etc.. etc.. but still there) or has something specific changed permanently to cause this?

Yes, I noticed the same. Now they show blank as default.
I did the following: 
For those that I didn't have a default value I added
Dropdown1.Default: First(CollectionName).ColumnName
and for those that I had a default value 
Like Dropdown2.Default: vDefaultValue
I changed it to
Dropdown2.Default: If(LookUp(CollectionName,vDefaultValue=ColumnName,true),vDefaultValue,First(CollectionName).ColumnName)

glad it wasn't just me !  would have been nice to have a heads up though !!  Where do I see any new updates that might affect my apps? Is there a specific news feed to subscribe to?

 

I've just changed my controls to add If (Is blank( etc... and that worked for me
