Latest indicator applet wireless connection is broken

I just updated my system and it is running Xubuntu 16.04.2 LTS with
xfce4-indicator-plugin version 2.3.3-0ubuntu4.

Before this update, when I had my wifi as the ethernet connection, I
would get a cute little icon that looked like a radar symbol with 4
arcs lit or grayed, depending on the strength of the signal.  If I
clicked on it, it would show me a list of the wifi networks available
and which one I was connected to.

Now it shows the line connection indicator (up and down arrows), lit
up if there's a connection and grayed if not, and no wifi network
information at all.  I can only find out which network I am connected
to by clicking on the icon, then clicking on "Connection Information."

This is essentially crippled functionality, as it does not give any
useful information by default.

What happened?
