Hi Manolo, 

I discovered the same thing when I upgraded ncmpcpp yesterday. Then I made some
searches and discovered the following: 

 -  the key bindings functionality has been redesign so as to use a bindings
    file located at /usr/share/doc/ncmpcpp which may be copied to your
    $XDG_CONFIG_HOME directory and then amended to suit your needs.
    See the NEWS file for more details. 

 -  the play, stop, pause, toggle, etc... command line arguments has
    been removed on purpose. See [1]. The workaround I am using now is to
    install mpc [2] and use it in all my scripts that was using the related 
    ncmpcpp's command line argument
