I may have understood what you mean now. At the first read I understood
that org-link-escape should be used to turn strings into link form, and
that it has been renamed into org-link-encode, thus the function that
should be used to turn strings into valid links is org-link-encode. What
you meant is that the old org-link-escape is now org-link-encode and a
new function with the same name has been introduced.
