What are typical values for ambient that aren't considered high?

I'm noticing that 3.7 seems to be producing a much brighter image than 3.6. Is
there some global setting that I should be using to make it equivalent to 3.6?
Besides #version, that is. I want to know what's the difference between 3.6 and
3.7 lighting that's causing it to produce a much brighter (almost oversaturated)
image.
