Since installing the latest patch, I've started seeing damage numbers with an orange symbol around them. What does this mean?

One of the new additions in the 2013-04-30 patch, is a visual indicator for Retaliation damage.

Retaliation now has its own iconic damage floater.

The symbol itself is the Retaliation fist symbol(enter image description here), and it appears around any damage numbers which are caused by Retaliation damage.
