Differences from 1.12 to 1.13


I'm a beginner with WoW addons and I'm trying to learn about 1.13 addon development. Regarding porting 1.12 addons to 1.13, is there any source of information about the Lua (?) differences? I found a piles of API changes, but thats way too detailed and doesn't help at all.

For example, there is something going on regarding "this" in 1.13, so there might be some change in scoping

I saw a short summary somewhere a week ago, but I've no idea where this was

If you are wanting to create addons for Classic WoW they are based on a modified version of the 8.x (current) API. "this" was replaced with "self" in 4.0.
