They moved all TSA precheck traffic for Southwest through the "secret" gate and removed normal entry from that gate. It will make both more efficient at checking people in, but precheck folks will have to walk a bit more. Unfortunately, those without precheck who use to use the "secret" gate have to use the more populated one.
I just went through the new Pre-Check gate this morning. There was essentially no line for the security screening, but the walk was indeed longer.
There was a line when I went through at ~7:00 AM, but it took less than 5 minutes. At least one person was turned away who didn't see it was now a TSA pre-check only entrance. The walk is on par with other airports and takes just a few minutes, but it does run you directly by the slightly better and less busy Starbuck's location.
