See forum... As far as I'm concerned, this is how it should be. The sky isn't illuminated by anything, it's naturally emitting.

I really think having this special case is a plus. After all, you can still emulate the old behavior using background materials or objects (say, fog).

I'm not convinced. When it's night, sky is not emitting. But maybe let's see how it feels for a while...

Why not? Whatever the scenario decides the Sky picture to be, it's emitting (say, aurora or stars). This is also the only solution that really makes sense for parallax imo.
