I also see this. In version 5.0 I could run multiple instances of Gramps, each with a different database open. As Eric notes, it makes comparing MUCH easier. It also permits copy/paste of things like note text between instances.
I have reverted to my old way of doing this, which is to run each instance of Gramps in a virtual machine. Copy/paste does not work (a problem with the RDP client I use), but otherwise it is effective. For copy/paste, I save the text to a TXT file on a network share, then open it in the other machine. It's a pain but gets the job done.
