In 2.2.* we were passing MD5 encoded password via UI. For Acton it changed to unencrypted password
as that was the only way to have external systems to authenticate cloudstack users for example
external LDAP.
This is being reverted back to MD5 encoded password in 3.0.2 as it was. It will be left to
the admin to configure this encryption mechanism in case LDAP is in use.

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?
