gedit renders without a window frame

After one of the latest updates on my debian/testing desktops, gedit 
had an extensive change in the look and feel of the GUI. Not only it 
replaced the familiar top menu comprising "file", "edit", "view", 
"search", "help", etc with a bunch of smart phone like buttons. Gedit 
also renders without a frame now. Consequently, it also lacks the 
buttons to iconify, maximize, or roll  the window up. 

While I may get used to the smartphone like buttons, the absence of 
iconify, and maximize messes up my work flow (for serious work). Is 
the frameless window deliberate? Or is it some kind of bug? 

PS: gedit is currently at v3.12.1 on my system
