[gdal-dev] What's up with the 8859 encoding?

Hello List,

I am very curious why after installing GDAL 1.11, I now need to use the
-lco ENCODING=UTF-8 option when using ogr2ogr on any of my already UTF-8
encoded shapefiles?  Failure to do so results in this error,

Warning 1: One or several characters couldn't be converted correctly from
UTF-8 to ISO-8859-1.

What gives?
