[erlang-questions] term_to_binary encoding of floats in R11B-4

I noticed in kernel's release notes of R11B-4 the following statement:

"A {minor_version,Version} option is now recognized by term_to_binary/2. 
{minor_version,1} will cause floats to be encoded in an exact and more 
space-efficient way compared to the previous encoding."

I didn't find any mentioning of this in erl_interface/ei.  Was the ei's 
implementation changed to support floats encoded in this more 
space-efficient way as well?
