Assorted 5.1.0 changes (not all-inclusive)

Selected changes that I think might be of interest for quick fixes/spotting broken addons.

First of all:
Zork's post for nameplate changes in 5.1.0
Ketho's comprehensive diff list

*LIGHT_FORCE -> *CHI (meaning SPELL_POWER_LIGHT_FORCE -> SPELL_POWER_CHI, LIGHT_FORCE -> CHI in event args etc, best doing a case sensitive search for LIGHT_FORCE)

new event: LOSS_OF_CONTROL_UPDATE
new event: UPDATE_VEHICLE_ACTIONBAR
new event: GROUP_JOINED arg1 = partyCategory (LE_PARTY_CATEGORY_HOME LE_PARTY_CATEGORY_INSTANCE etc)

removed chat: BATTLEGROUND / BATTLEGROUND_LEADER
new chat: INSTANCE_CHAT / INSTANCE_CHAT_LEADER
removed globalstring: BATTLEGROUND_MESSAGE|CHAT_BATTLEGROUND_GET|CHAT_BATTLEGROUND_LEADER_GET|CHAT_BATTLEGROUND_SEND
added globalstring: CHAT_INSTANCE_CHAT_GET|CHAT_INSTANCE_CHAT_LEADER_GET|CHAT_INSTANCE_CHAT_SEND

added globalstring: FACTION_STANDING_INCREASED_ACH_BONUS|FACTION_STANDING_INCREASED_DOUBLE_BONUS

Code:
local id, rep, maxRep, name, text, texture, reaction, threshold, nextThreshold = GetFriendshipReputation(); 
-- name inserted after maxRep, nextThreshold added in 5.1.0

local totalMembers, onlineMembers, onlineAndMobileMembers = GetNumGuildMembers(); 
-- onlineAndMobileMembers added in 5.1.0

local speciesID, customName, petLevel, xp, maxXp, displayID, isFavorite, name, petIcon = C_PetJournal.GetPetInfoByPetID(petID); 
-- isFavorite inserted after displayID in 5.1.0

removed: GetFriendshipReputationByID(factionID)
added: local friendID, friendRep, friendMaxRep, friendName, friendText, friendTexture, friendTextLevel, friendThreshold, nextFriendThreshold = GetFriendshipReputation(factionID); 
-- not a direct replacement as returns have been changed as well

local name, rank, icon, count, debuffType, duration, expirationTime, unitCaster, canStealOrPurge, shouldConsolidate, spellId, canApplyAura, isBossDebuff, isCastByPlayer, [points1, points2, points3], unknown  = UnitAura|Buff|Debuff() 
-- isCastByPlayer has been moved after isBossDebuff, points1-3 bumped 1 position to #15, #16, #17, unknown return at #18

local status, mapName, [instanceID, levelRangeMin, levelRangeMax,] teamSize, registeredMatch, [eligibleInQueue, waitingOnOtherActivity,] suspend = GetBattlefieldStatus(i); 
-- instanceID, levelRangeMin, levelRangeMax, removed between mapName, teamSize, eligibleInQueue, waitingOnOtherActivity removed after registeredMatch, suspend added  in 5.1.0 

removed: IsInScenarioGroup()

:SetTexture() 
-- no longer accepts an empty string "" as no_texture, nil still works without causing the green texture of death effect
removed: PetExpBar*
added: PlayerFrameMultiGroupFrame

-- Instance Difficulty globals added
DIFFICULTY_DUNGEON_NORMAL = 1;
DIFFICULTY_DUNGEON_HEROIC = 2;
DIFFICULTY_RAID10_NORMAL = 3;
DIFFICULTY_RAID25_NORMAL = 4;
DIFFICULTY_RAID10_HEROIC = 5;
DIFFICULTY_RAID25_HEROIC = 6;
DIFFICULTY_RAID_LFR = 7;
DIFFICULTY_DUNGEON_CHALLENGE = 8;
DIFFICULTY_RAID40 = 9;

removed macros: /clearmaintank /clearmainassist (and their shorthand versions)
added macros: /stopspelltarget /summonbattlepet /randomfavoritepet /dismissbattlepet /dismisspet /summonpet (and their shorthand versions)
macro conditionals added:
"HasVehicleActionBar", "HasOverrideActionBar", "HasTempShapeshiftActionBar",
"HasOverrideUI", "GetVehicleBarIndex", "GetOverrideBarIndex",
"HasExtraActionBar", "GetTempShapeshiftBarIndex", "CanExitVehicle"

Miscellanea / Trivia:
Chat bubbles have their own font so it can be overridden separately
"ChatBubbleFont" there's also _KO|_RU|_ZH variants.

Interface option for setting "displayWorldPVPObjectives" cvar removed (not sure if cvar itself still exists)

A stray global _ was removed from WatchFrame.lua, we'll see if that resolves some of the map taint issues.
