During the beta, answers with low score (score −3 or below if I remember correctly) were shown in gray text, but they are no longer shown in gray.

I guess that this change is unintentional, judging from the way the style sheet is written. Namely, the style sheet still contains the declaration .downvoted-answer {color: #888888;} but it is effectively ignored because it is overridden by other declarations.
