from the Changes file:

# Changes to ParserWarnLevel

The default value for ParserWarnLevel was changed form zero to two.

The ParserWarnLevel controls the error handling of the libxml2 parser. The 
higher the setting, the more verbose the output. The change to the default is to 
report when libxml2 has problems parsing a document (which often times results 
in processing only part of a document).

To get the old behavior, either set ParserWarnLevel to zero in your config file, 
or use the new -W command line option to set the ParserWarnLevel at run time. If 
ParserWarnLevel is set in the config file, it will override the -W option.

Also, to see UTF-8 to 8859-1 conversion errors set ParserWarnLevel to 3 or more. 
Previously, these warning were issues at ParserWarnLevel of one.
