I think this is an effect created by Xenviro or another Addon.
Can't reproduce it and it was neither announced nor mentioned in the release notes.

:-( Oh, did not test it by myself. Maybe someone else could shed a ligth on the case.

Same, unable to reproduce this effect and I have xEnviro. I just have the same old effect I had in XP10.

 

My guess is that he is using custom runway textures which have normal maps (Maybe the MisterX addon?), in which case, it has always done this ;-)

I think you're right, it must be normal map. But it seems the presence of a NM triggers the PBR effect. Looks really cool indeed, and we might take advantage of this.

Not your fault Tom, you were just repeating what someone else had posted ;-)

I added a normal map to the apron at EGGP. It had the same effect (but it also did it when it was dry and the sun was directly overhead). It's cool non-the-less and something I hope airport designers now start adding

Well, I would expect that we will see wet runways in X-Plane 11.1 or 11.2, since the graphic effects shall be moved to the scenery and it wouldn´t be difficult to let the wet runway texture only load, when the weather is wet.

I would expect xENVIRO to add something of this nature (rain and snow) in an upcoming version;

 

version 1.2 Visible precipitation volume.
