It's not.  It was accidentally changed to plain-text in 3.0 to support LDAP and a community
member found it changed from 2.2.x.  We've reverted it now to pass in MD5 hashed again.  If
you want to enable LDAP Auth, you would now need an additional step to modify the UI to pass
in a plain-text password, if you wish.

Abhi, is this a backwards incompatible API change?   Also, what does it mean for upgrade?

I thought we always sent MD5 hashed passwords from UI to MS.  Can you explain the change a
bit more?
