fstab changes in 11.3RC?

I’ve typically mounted a shared Network Drive through fstab with this line:

//   /home/*user*/mount   cifs   credentials=/home/*user*/.scripts/.creds,_netdev,uid=*client_user*,gid=users   0 0

.creds file =

this no longer works, but this does:

//   /home/*user*/mount   cifs   username=*server_user*,password=*password*,_netdev,uid=*client_user*,gid=users   0 0

I’m assuming there’s been some change so the linked external .creds file no longer works?

Thats less secure (as anyone can read /etc/fstab), so I’d be surprised about that.
