The aliases were deprecated since Python 3.2. It's now time to use the newer names.

array.array.fromstring() implictly converted Unicode to UTF-8:

$ python3
Python 3.7.5 (default, Oct 17 2019, 12:16:48) 
>>> import array
>>> a=array.array('B')
>>> a.fromstring('€uro')
>>> a
array('B', [226, 130, 172, 117, 114, 111])
>>> list('€uro'.encode('utf8'))
[226, 130, 172, 117, 114, 111]

The removal is now documented in 3.7 and 3.8.
