Wait a minute. I got 2 things confused here:

1. Daily maintenance was and is at 6:42 (probably; I don't maintain the
   cron package).
2. Daily maintenance for *news* takes places at 3:08 AM because it
   doesn't run from /etc/cron.daily but has it's own crontab.

So, nothing has changed AFAIK.

Sorry for the confusion.
