There are many reasons for the change.
 
1) Embracing white space is important for a clean and comfortable interface.
2) Many areas of the interface are enlarged for different displays (tablets, mobile, laptops) and to better handle various DPI configurations.
3) There are 5 indicators that show on the 3rd line.
4) 50% of subjects exceed the available space and attempt to show users as much as possible.  Your using Test subjects :)
 
Hope this helps

Thanx Tim for taking the time to respond
 
It makes me understand it better why it's like it is.
point 1 and 2, I understand
3) size, attachment, flagged, replied/forwarded, is there a fifth? curious.
 
4) true.. not that much more length, about 17characters more.  In old version one can adjust width of the column 
Is an average lenght know for subjects?
I never heared comments about the short subject, but this is what my customer says about scrolling.. 
when you have a lot of mail
subject difference (not test subjects :D )
max width
 
but without the extra line per message there are almost twice as much messages visible (more subjects ;) )

I don't have the data now on subject lengths but when we reworked the interface (year ago) to determine widths of areas we had processed like 100,000 messages.  
 
Replied and Forwarded should be separate which would be 5 indicators.
