Yes, that changed a few days ago and this is described in the news
section of the manual
* AUCTeX is able to display several levels of super- and subscripts,
each one raised above and a bit smaller than its basis. For this
feature, have a look at the customize options
'font-latex-fontify-script' (especially the new values
'multi-level' and 'invisible') and
'font-latex-fontify-script-max-level'. Also, the script characters
'^' and '_' are also fontified with a special face named
'font-latex-script-char-face'. See Fontification of math, for
So you may want to customize `font-latex-script-char-face'. I suggest
you to keep it different from the rest of the equation, in order to
better highlight those characters.
