No such change was made. Perhaps your OS distribution has bumped the
default (TLS) security level from 1 (80-bit or more) to 2 (~112 bit or
more). You can look in the system-wide openssl.cnf file.

The security levels are documented. You can set the security level
in the cipher string:
or via the API.
