History.dat 2.15 introduces a format change for multiple softlist names.
For example, this entry is from 2.14:

$amigaocs_flop,amigaaga_flop,amiga_flop=alloallo,alloallo1,
$bio


And this entry is from 2.15:

$amigaocs_flop=alloallo,alloallo1,
$amigaaga_flop=alloallo,alloallo1,
$amiga_flop=alloallo,alloallo1,
$bio


Is this a permanent change?

Yes, each softlist will be separated when a game appears in multiple softlists.

$softlist1=
$softlist2=
$bio

instead of

$softlist1,softlist2=
$bio


Even better, the next History.dat release will separates ROMs when required :

$apple2_flop_orig=factory,
$apple2_flop_clcracked=thefctry,
$bio

instead of the actual:

$apple2_flop_orig=factory,thefctry,
$apple2_flop_clcracked=factory,thefctry,
$bio
