This isn't exactly a new thing: it's more like a reiteration. At least as far back as 1950, the Church has taken a fairly nonchalant stance towards the issue. (That was when Pius XII claimed that there wasn't a conflict between Catholic teaching and evolution. He also acknowledged that it was a hypothesis which should be considered strongly.) John Paul II pretty much said the same thing in 1996, wherein he proclaimed that evolution was probably more than just a hypothesis, and that science should stay in the realm of science and religion should stay in the realm of religion.

I think that the cardinal restated the Church's position so that people wouldn't lump them in with the fundamentalists.
