New version of encrypted libraries 7.0.0+

I am wondering what are the changes for encrypted libraries in version 7 of the server. In the 7.0.0 client changelog it says

Support new version of encrypted libraries if server version is 7.0.0+

I searched and did not find any info on changes made?

File name encryption: “no” according to the developers
