The change is not listed in the history of DEPRECATED.pod, nor is it on
Also, the String.reverse is still documented in our PDD's. The Rakudo people
would really like for a String.reverse vtable to exist, and they have no
problem with it returning the reversed value, instead of it modifying
in-place. They have old code that used it that has now stopped working,

reversed copy, I will add it back in a few days.
