  3.8 and text {}

I upgraded to the '268 version and noticed tonight,

Possible Parse Error: Text may not be displayed as expected. Please 
refer to the user manual regarding changes in POV-Ray v3.8 and later.

Can someone point me to the docs for this?

The warning hits on the first 't' in 'text' in this construct I've used 
for decades:

text {
	ttf ArialFont
	label
	0.23,0
	scale 0.02
	translate <-0.080*inches, 0.088*inches, -0.001*inches>
	texture {controlTextureOn}
}
