Regression: Time#parse no longer automatically converts to localtime

Description

In Ruby 2.1 and before, Time#parse automatically converted to the localtime:

Ruby 2.1:

>> require 'time'
=> true
>> ENV['TZ'] = 'Australia/Melbourne'
=> "Australia/Melbourne"
>> Time.parse("2014-12-29 20:16:32 -0400")
=> 2014-12-30 11:16:32 +1100

But in Ruby 2.2, this is not the case:

>> require 'time'
>> ENV['TZ'] = 'Australia/Melbourne'
>> Time.parse("2014-12-29 20:16:32 -0400")
=> 2014-12-29 20:16:32 -0400 # !!
>> Time.parse("2014-12-29 20:16:32 -0400").localtime
=> 2014-12-30 11:16:32 +1100

This seems to be a regression, as this is a change in default behaviour without a MAJOR version bump, violating semver.
