  • Updated character create windows
  • Updated auction house windows

You guys have the choice. You can do everything in a single thread, or make multiple threads, however it seems to make the most sense ...

I'll try and keep it updated

In addition to OP post, I found this:

New API:
AbbreviateLargeNumbers(num) (defined in Lua, see UIParent.lua)
BreakUpLargeNumbers(num) (defined in Lua, see UIParent.lua)
GetNextGuildPerkIndex()
RemoveTalent(id)
SetSpecialization(id)
GetNumSpecializations()
GetSpecializationInfo(masteryIndex) returns id, name, description, icon, background
GetVoidUnlockCost() (in copper)
HasOverrideActionBar()
GetOverrideBarSkin()
GetOverrideBarIndex()
GetVehicleBarIndex()
HasVehicleActionBar()
HasTempShapeShiftActionBar()
BeginActionBarTransition(frame, ???)
GetMultiCastBarIndex()
GetExtraBarIndex()
GetActionCharges(action) returns charges, maxCharges, chargeStart, chargeDuration
GetRaidBuffTrayAuraInfo(index) returns name, rank, texture, duration, expiration, spellID, slot
NeutralPlayerSelectFaction(id) 1 = Horde, 2 = Alliance
UpdateFrameLock(frame) used for pet battles, locking UI elements
IsInRaid()
IsInGroup() used for party I'd guess
IsBlizzCon() used in beta to disable social functions like friendlist, replacing the previously used CVar with the same name
GetFriendshipReputation() returns id, reputation, maxRep, text, texture
GetLootSlotType(slot) returns id (0 = none, 1 = item, 2 = money, 3 = currency)
ValidateActionBarTransition()
IsEuropeanNumbers()
SetChallengeMode(index)
ResetMerchantFilter()
SetMerchantFilter(index)
GetMerchantFilteR()
GetChallengeMode()
AcceptSpellConfirmationPrompt()
DeclineSpellConfirmationPrompt()
GetWorldElapsedTime(timerID) returns ??, elapsed, isChallengeModeTimer

:RegisterUnitEvent(event, unit1, unit2)


Changed API:
GetActiveTalentGroup() > GetActiveSpecGroup()
GetNumPartyMembers() > GetNumSubgroupMembers()
UnitIsPartyLeader() > UnitIsGroupLeader()
GetTalentTabInfo() > GetSpecializationInfo() (some returns removed)
GetNumTalentGroups() > GetNumSpecGroups()
UnitIsRaidOfficer() > UnitIsGroupAssistant()
GetPartyMember() > GetGroupMember()
GetNumUnspentTalentPoints() > GetNumUnspentTalents()
GetExpertisePercent() > GetExpertise()

GetGuildFactionInfo() changed (no longer returns experience caps as they are removed, last two returns).
GameTooltip:SetTalent() changed arguments.
LootSlotHasItem() changed (works for currencies and money aswell)

PetMoveTo(target) new argument.
GetDefaultLanguage() new return: languageID
GetGuildRosterInfo() new return: reputationStanding
GetMapInfo() new returns: isMicroDungeon, microDungeonMapName
GetNumDungeonMapLevels() new return: isFirstFloor


New events:
UPDATE_VEHICLE_ACTIONBAR
UPDATE_OVERRIDE_ACTIONBAR
SPELL_UPDATE_CHARGES
NEUTRAL_FACTION_SELECT_RESULT
SHOW_FACTION_SELECT_UI
QUICK_TICKET_SYSTEM_STATUS
QUICK_TICKET_THROTTLE_CHANGED
ITEM_RESTORATION_BUTTON_STATUS
SPELL_CONFIRMATION_PROMPT
SPELL_CONFIRMATION_TIMEOUT
WORLD_STATE_TIMER_START arg1 = timerID
WORLD_STATE_TIMER_STOP arg1 = timerID


Misc stuff:
- Pets seem to have lost their talents, unsure.
- Lots of new events and functions for the pet battle window, not going to list them (functions are unfinished, using temporary names)
- A pet journal has been added, not going to list them (unfinished aswell)
- BonusActionBar file has been split up into multiple files.
- BonusActionBar itself has been replaced with OverrideActionBar
- Monk class color: 0/255/150
- Death Knight talent levels: 56, 57, 58, 60, 75, 90
- Total glyph slots: 6 (3 major, 3 minor)
- New frame: DestinyFrame (used for Pandaren faction selection)
- New graphics setting: SSAO (no idea what it is)
- New frame: PVEFrame (shows LFG, LFR and Challenges)
- Paladins get a total of 5 holy power?
- Default unitframes gets smooth transition on statusbars

Boundless Conviction (a Prot ability). Allows them to gain 2 additional Holy Power.

It means Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO).
It has to do with lighting and is probably another way to kill our framerate for marginal visual benefit :P

According to the code, it seems to be set to a lower value the higher your settings are (low = 2, high = 1).

Have the secure templates/handlers changed at all in 5.0? I keep expecting snippets nerfed due to their ability to easily /castrandom. But at the same time it seems absolutely important (more important!) for a snippet to choose a spell based on the last one loaded or on a variable, so we can do toggle abilities and stuff.

Curious if item:id format has changed also? It's changed every expansion so far (gems in BC, level in WotLK, reforge in cata). Did they put tinker into the item id in MoP?

Also I gave a guildmate a macro to test COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED results and it appears they've changed. Anyone played with them at all?

You don't need addons enabled to test any of this, and only so much can be gleaned from looking at the extracted UI.

Macro interfaces :)

Curious, anyone with beta access able to test this new binding?

<ModifiedClick action="CASTAOEONTARGET" default="CTRL"/>

Wonder if this skips the targeting reticule step for AoE spells if you have something targeted.

Updated the list to the new build:

I tried a few ways to use it with hurricane on my copied druid and it had no effect. Did a /dump IsModifiedClick("CASTAOEONTARGET") in the cast and it was 1. Maybe NYI? It'd be a very handy feature.

To my previous questions, if anyone else curious, I was able to create a secure button that toggled its spell successfully so no apparent nerf there. No change to item:id's. And no readily apparent change to COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED.

Whoops, that's part of a dev-only system. It will be removed to avoid confusion.

Humm, it appears they may be adding vendor filters to mists. Anybody know where I can find that code? It may potentially affect my addon.

(link below because adding the link via the UI seems broken?)

Do mind they take a little time to load, huge diff :)

Any date, confirmed that they will enable AddOns on Beta?

I doubth we will see it before all the zones are open, at the very least.

UPDATE_EXPANSION_LEVEL this must be the least firing event, ever
