Why was datatype:string changed to datatype:text?

Why was datatype:string changed to datatype:text ?

The new version of Elasticsearch is not very backwards compatible. One of the things that seems to break is that datatype string should now be called datatype text ?

Why was this change made? Would it be better to support "string" and "text" as both being the same datatype?
