it looks like

the agenda while

Sheer luck, I would say.

* TODO task
SCHEDULED: <2017-12-14 Do>
DEADLINE: <2017-12-14 Do>

will still find the SCHEDULED tinestamp but no more the DEADLINE.
I had this sequence in my org templates in the past and had no issues as far as 
I remember.
Has this behaviour changed?

I cannot remember Org supporting this syntax, actually. I don't think
anything changed.

Freshly creating a new SCHEDULED and DEADLINED timestamp results in the 
structure below.
Do all tasks now need to have both items in the same line like here:

* TODO task
SCHEDULED: <2017-12-14 Do> DEADLINE: <2017-12-14 Do>

They do, but it's not new.


Thanks, Nicolas.

I am concerned hearing you say "sheer luck" because I am relying on such double 
entries, which seem to have worked well in the past:

* TODO [#A] Change tyres spring/autumn
DEADLINE: <2018-05-01 Di> SCHEDULED: <2018-04-21 Sa +1y>
DEADLINE: <2018-11-10 Sa> SCHEDULED: <2018-11-03 Sa +1y>

So is that working only by sheer luck?

Thank you.
Regards, Rainer
