Why do you think that C-x C-f now opens the Open File dialog?
There have been no changes to the existing mechanism.

longlines-mode is the old "soft wrap" mode.

The change log should be helpful:

"Automatic wrapping detection (hard word wrap = auto-fill, vs.~soft  
word wrap) improved.  A new customization option `auto-word-wrap- 
default-function' may be used to configure the default, which is hard  
word wrapping."

That means, keep it on auto and set the customization option.
