They don't make us privy to their internal logic but there are numerous reasons to make the type of architectural changes they've made in the API. It's not uncommon for this type of thing to happen...

If you break things out into individual files they have their own context (e.g, locals are local to that space, etc) which is a good thing for...

Wha? UIFrameFadeIn() and UIFrameFadeOut() are function calls, you can call them from Lua or XML. Instead of frame:Show() you do UIFrameFadeIn(frame, timeToFade, startAlpha, endAlpha) and vice-versa.

I don't see why not. You'd just have to grab the itemlink from the tooltip (local itemName, ItemLink = GameTooltip:GetItem() ). If you know the call that occurs from the command line code you can...

PlaySoundFile() works just fine. The problem with that addon is that it expects COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED to provide arguments but it doesn't anymore -- not the ones you want. You have to get them...
