Unexpected change in Neovim configuration storage

I just noticed that none of my neovim configuration parameters were read today (yes, I know, it’s been a while I moved to atom for my Go programming). As of today, they were stored in the ~/.nvim  directory and the main confiugration file was ~/.nvim/nvimrc .

I checked the content of my configuration file, without seeing anything wrong. I then went in my plugin manager’s webpage, to see that they give usage examples for neovim, but all the paths relate to ~/.config/nvim  now, and the main configuration file is now named init.vim . After moveing everything to that directory, and updating the first line that calls vim-plug (call plug#begin(‘~/.config/nvim/plugged’)  ), everything came back to normal :-)

I must have missed some announcement about that core change in neovim…
