Sure: it's a new feature: the basic idea is that if a form being
evaluated through ielm writes to standard-output (say, using princ),
that output appears in the ielm buffer, making it work more like a
normal command line. I looked into doing the same thing for message
output, but I couldn't get after-change-functions in *Messages* to run
