Why is 15.06 not printing my model at 100%?

It seems 15.06 is automatically resizing my models to fit into the print area and calling it 100%. It is NOT 100% and there is no way to set the model to the ACTUAL 100%. In 15.02 the model prints are the actual 100%. See attached photo. Both prints were set to 100% in 15.02 (left) and 15.06 (right). Whats up?

I would just use 15.02, but the print quality is terrible when compared to 15.06 (see attached). I must have missed some setting. Hard to compare settings as the UI between version in completely different.

    When you see infill showing through you probably need to check one box to fix it. It's in the basic screen go to fill density and click the ... next to that and check the box "infill prints after perimeters". That should fix that issue.

    I am assuming that this suggestion is for 15.06, although I thought the picture showed the infill showing through on the part that had been printed using 15.02? I am currently using 15.02 (as I found 15.06 to be a bit buggy) and when I click the ... box next to fill density, the only boxes I can check are for 'Solid Infill top' and 'Solid infill bottom'. I have set 'Infill overlap %' to 0 but we are still getting the infill showing through and it would be good to stop that happening...
