echo "\n";

The actual result is correct, please see

If you'd like to receive the old result (though you should ask yourself why you want that) you can either
a) change the serialize_precision setting, understanding that you will no longer receive an accurate floating-point representation, or
b) explicitly round your floating point numbers to a lower level of precision.
