possèderait for conditional of posséder ?

Is this a spelling due to a language reform ? I am not seeing it here https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:French_spelling_reforms_of_1990

Both the conjugation tools for WordReference and Reverso only list  posséderait as a spelling.

Thanks. Paul.

Both forms are possible according to Le Robert. It seems, though that posséderait is more common.
