    $\begingroup$ ED are Eurodollar futures as you probably know. They can be used as estimators of future 3-mo Libors in the short/medium term. $\endgroup$

Really a question for the help desk F1 F1.

However, that is not a recent change. ICVS 23 uses these since years. If you did not have that, I suspect you restored SWDF DFLT in which case you see what is recommended.

Ignore the classification - it's not a commodity - it's ED future. HELP ICVS has white papers. The first one, Building the BBG IR Curve discusses this in quite some detail.
