That's a bug: #5724 and #5771. It's definitely not some justification
strategy since I reject automatic change of letterspacing. And as long as
you dont change any of the new wordspacing / glyph extension / optical
margins settings, the layout should be exactly the same as in 1.3.3.x.
Anything else is a bug.

I wrote some comments on how the new justification strategy *should* work
