Previously, you could download up to 100,000 URLs with each type of error. Now, both the display and download are limited to 1,000. Google says "less is more' and "there was no realistic way to view all 100,000 errors - no way to sort, search, or mark your progress." Google is wrong.
Good observation. There is, in general, a kind of dumbing down happening with many of these changes. It's almost like WMT is turning into one of those eye candy reports that no one really cares about, rather than truly actionable information.
I look forward to something much more real from Google in the near future. In the meantime (and maybe in the long run) webmasters may want to use Bing's WMT if they aren't already. A lot of cral information is about our site anyway, and not specifically about Google - no matter whose tool you use to get the data.
