API version used in Classic

Hi all,

Just wondering which version of API is being used for classic.

Is it a modified version of modern (BfA) API? Or is it an enhanced/improved version of vanilla API?

I also heard someone saying that it would be based on 7.3.5

Does anyone know the exact answer to this?

Thank you!

Modified BfA.

The Blizzcon preview was a 7.x derivative.

So, they have updated from 7.x to modern (modified) BfA since Blizzcon?

It'll be separate, they didn't think it's worth the effort to keep api parity. Maybe only for important bugs and Battle.net friends/chat
