It's in NEWS, although it doesn't jump out at one:
* Users can no longer post articles containing Approved: headers to
moderated groups by default; they must be specifically given that
permission with the access: parameter in readers.conf. See the man
page for more details.
You need to edit readers.conf and add an access: "RPA" for the stanza that
applies to the local system.
