Yes, there was a change (unintended!) at that time. See the mailing  
list discussion titled "new binaries for Windows and Mac OS X" from  
the end of October for details. Thanks to Bruno's persistence, we  
finally figured out what's happening.

I'm guessing that you have the Region (in System Preferences /  
International / Formats) set to the Netherlands; this is what's  
confusing TeXworks (because of how the Qt locale system works).

This was fixed in r228, but I haven't built a new binary release yet,  
sorry. Once there is an updated version, you should find that the  
TeXworks preferences behave properly again.
