I have downloaded 2.0.16 from the CVS archive on 
and tried it out, and I only need set 
 (setq tramp-password-end-of-line "\r\n") 
and otherwise the code works without modification.

I was foxed by the change of syntax for a while, wondering why
did not kick tramp off, but after looking at the documentation, I
realised the error of my ways.

I have noticed that
 1.  I cannot use
     as it does not get the password prompt, while
 2.  The code is always uploading the perl code for encoding/decoding,
     while before I could use the existing binary mimencode on the
     remote host.

I'm not sure it these are down to another RTFM issue, but even my old
pm method
  ;; Use plink with MIME (base64) encoding
     (tramp-connection-function  tramp-open-connection-rsh)
     (tramp-rsh-program          "plink")
     (tramp-rcp-program          nil)
     (tramp-remote-sh            "/bin/sh")
     (tramp-rsh-args             ("-v" "-ssh")) ;; "-v" optional
     (tramp-rcp-args             nil)
     (tramp-rcp-keep-date-arg    nil)
     (tramp-su-program           nil)
     (tramp-su-args              nil)
     (tramp-encoding-command     "mimencode -b")
     (tramp-decoding-command     "mimencode -u -b")
     (tramp-encoding-function    base64-encode-region)
     (tramp-decoding-function    base64-decode-region)
     (tramp-telnet-program       nil)
     (tramp-telnet-args          nil)
now pushes the perl code to the server. (Previously I was using

there are several methods (e.g. plinkm, plinku) that are not defined. 

I hope this feedback is useful, and thank you for your work developing
