wbdp changed to wpfb?

I just installed a new wordpress site via softalicious and noticed that instead of the database being $wpdb it is now $wpfb

Silly question I know, everything still works as expected, but I’ve googled it and no joy – when did the prefix change? What was the reasoning behind it? Just curious really. Does anyone know?
