So can anyone explain to me how this works? Or what it is suppose to do? Because I don't notice any difference when I turn it on.

It's a new option under "More Options".

Woah, they implemented that? If it does the same thing as it used to do, then it shows you a range indicator when you press the skillshot button, and casts the ability towards where your mouse is when you release it.

So, its for people who want to smartcast, but also want a range indicator to see how far their skill shot goes.

That is what I thought it would do myself. However whenever I activated it... I saw no difference, was disappointed. Haha

If u use smartcast on things like viktors lazor, you hold down the spell button (E) to select the intial target point and drag the mouse to select the direction, once u release the button (e) it will shoot your spell in that line. This option just puts that blue arrow thingy when u do this, just like the range indicator on normal spells.

Range indicators can be added by changing the value of the "SmartCastOnKeyRelease" option in your game.cfg (in the ...\League of Legends\RADS\solutions\lol_game_client_sln\releases\0.0.0.x\deploy\data\cfg directory) from 0 to 1. This is an undocumented feature that is not directly supported by the in-game UI, and will allow you to see the targeting reticles of abilities while still being able to smart cast. Using this option there is also a bonus benefit that you can disrupt a mispressed key by rightclicking somewhere before you release the key.
