Why does Arc not read Mapinfo tab anymore?

Earlier this year 2015 we could read mapinfo files directly by adding them from the Add button.  Now it's December and we have downloaded the latest Arc Desktop.  We cannot read mapinfo tab files anymore.  It opens them as text tables only.

 

We had to open the *.tab in Google Earth, then save as a KMZ.  Then convert in Arc using KML  to Layer tool.

 

Is there a better solution?
