I expect there are plenty of people who are setting truncate-lines
globally to t, and who will spot the change. So a line in a news
probably won't harm.

I realized that I would also prefer the new default with the exception
of IDO completion. So I modified Johan's advice to work for IDO only:

(add-hook 'ido-minibuffer-setup-hook
          (lambda ()
            (setq truncate-lines (default-value 'truncate-lines))))
