The short answer is that you can no longer click-and-drag to resize the
two text areas. The input area will automatically resize if you type a
longer message. You can also specify a minimum size under
Preferences->Conversations->Minimum input area height in lines.

You can also read about some of the reasoning behind the change in the
following blog posts:

Or dig back through the mailing list archives where it was discussed in
numerous threads, particularly in March:
