Or more strictly, two commits did. I've just opened this ticket with

and pushed the following to blead:

    Encode: truncated_utf8.t TODO passes
    This TODO test has been passing since the combination of:
        which added utf8n_to_uvchr_msgs to the perl API
        which upgraded blead to Encode  2.96, which makes use of this new
        function if available.
    So stop marking it as TODO in blead.
    This is patching a cpan/ distribution, but its only a test, and its a
    bit late in code freeze to install a newer Encode released, while we
    don't want a production perl with spurious passing TODO tests.

That he said that that that that is is is debatable, is debatable.
