I don't think we've made any changes there. It could be something else 
that has changed in the data. We actually don't have anything to do with 
label positioning algorithms beyond a couple basic options, the details 
are handled by Mapnik.

If you're talking about past releases, there is no list of emails. We've 
had https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues/1430 open 
for generating a changelog but haven't decided what action to take.
