I do not know the actual time or date of the change, but I noticed it today.

Example: I use Alfred which now shows "Word.app" instead of "Word".

Same goes for Spotlight.

EDIT: How do I remove the .app for my applications?

Maybe your Finder's (advanced) preferences is set to "Show all filename extensions" - I like that, actually!

So you would uncheck this box to hide the .app extension.
