Boar aggressiveness

Has the aggressiveness of boars been upped in 0.8.3? I am finding I am constantly losing people to boars in a way I have never had before - it is (by far) - my number one cause of death in this patch, and building regular buildings on top of a spawner doesn’t deter them, so I have had to resort to building barracks on them so that when the boars do spawn, I have at least some soldiers nearby to try and hunt them down before they kill too many people.
