You're comparing the older Dev Preview 1 to the newer Dev Preview app drawer. From an article on AndroidPit, App drawer has been fixed While we commend Google on trying a new, vertical-scrolling app drawer, the alphabetical dividers on the left and negative space at the end of some sections was a bad idea.
