Recently is when? Because I seem now to remember that the behavior was
different a while ago.

It was one of the changes you asked for (and received) in

Since I also changed from Xemacs to GNU emacs and from RCS to HG at the
same time some month ago, I can't say anything about RCS in GNU emacs.

By "other backends", I meant Git and Bazaar.

I find the new behavior counter intuitive. Right now I have to check
almost every hour the changes I did in my files and vc-annotate does not
display those changes.

It just fails to distinguish them with colors, right? The changes are still displayed (say, with commit numbers on the side).

But the 3rd package ahg uses annotate in a way that looks more natural
to me, it is able to distinguish the different commits I made during a
day, but it lacks features vc-annotate offers.

How does it look? Please send a screenshot.

Is there any way to have, at least optionally, such a behavior in

Having both short dates in the output and per-minute commit highlighting granularity is not trivial to implement.

Or am I the only one to complain....

So far - yes.
