[ESS] no syntax highlighting/colors for text between quotes in iESS

Dear All,

Since my last update of ESS (ess-version: 16.04 [elpa: 20160703.731] but
also ESS from git from a few minutes ago: ess-version: 16.04 [git:
eae9e8fc9d8aa02c5831eb357969e66caa8c1e39]) in the iESS buffer text between
quotes is no longer colored. It is in the ESS buffer, though.

If instead of using the above version I use the 16.04 from the tar.gz from
http://ess.r-project.org/index.php?Section=download (ess-version: 16.04
[Released git: cccb9481389b]) I get back the usual (for me) behavior of
having text within quotes with distinct syntax coloring in both the iESS
and ESS buffers.

I can reproduce the above by using ess-site from either one or another

Is this intended? Is there any way to bring back the old behavior?
