No, it's just that autocalling got a bit more conservative and is now
off by default.  You can still configure it to 'smart' (the old
default) or 'full' if you want, but over time we've found enough
problems triggered by autocall that we decided to make it off by
default.  I keep it on (in 'smart' mode), but that's b/c I know what
to expect.
