View() vectors RStudio 1.4

The behaviour of View() with vectors has changed in RStudio 1.4. View() applied to a vector used to display the contents as if it were a 1 column matrix, which was very useful as a quick look at the contents. In 1.4 this has changed to a three column display showing the Name, the Type, and the Value (as a single truncated string). Of course there is a workaround by typing View(data.frame(x)) but that is clumsy and in my view this change is a retrograde step.
