can somebody explain the hierarchic keyword changes in 4.6?

Added the option of a user-customizable path separator string (e.g. ' | ') to Structured Keywords panel.

what exactly does it mean for me when I use the str. keywords?

It means that you can use a special character like '|' to separate the keywords in the hierarchy which will allow you to preserve the path of keywords.

I do not understand why this was not possible before with the komma? ( , )

The comma already separates keywords.  Adding the additional separator allows something like this:

Animals | Mammal | Feline | Cat, Animals | Mammal | Canine | Dog

See the two paths?  Without the path separator, the two paths would have been represented like this:

Animals, Canine, Cat, Dog, Feline, Mammal

See the difference?

They would be extremely useful where there are 2 keywords the same, but mean different things depending on context. For example "Classical"
art | music | Classical
or
art | painting | Classical
