Not Solved Plugin Changes coming in 1.6.5
#1
Not Solved
We now have the wiki page for 1.6.5 started, and I've included the changes to the plugin system, which include a serious overhaul. Please visit:
General 1.6.5 Page: [wiki]1.6.5[/wiki]
Direct to Plugin Section: [wiki]1.6.5#Plugin_System_Changes[/wiki]

This will require a minor update to plugins using several hooks.

If you're using a plugin that is no longer actively maintained that has hooks listed in the first section, you will need to post in the plugin support forum and hopefully someone with working knowledge of that plugin can tell you the changes needed to make it work again.

If you're using the hooks listed in the 2nd section the change is simply to receive by reference:
Change:
function example_func($var)
To:
function example_func(&$var)

Thank you.

EDIT Wednesday 2 Nov. 00:40am Eastern Time:
Due to a plugin that was already receiving by reference Stefan discovered you can use the receive by reference method (shown above in the case of the 2nd section) for either of the plugin type changes. It was not intended functionality, but does make authoring plugins much simpler.

EDIT Wednesday 30 Nov. 1056am Eastern Time:
Pavemen has graciously created a script to update plugins for you.
