We should create a wiki page listing API changes (I'd prefer de mwiki as
it has support for syntax highlighting, allowing a before-after snippet;
suggestions for the page location are welcome), I'll write about them
when the next developer snapshot is ready, so that people can test some
changes (like this incompatible change in Addons.xcu, some API changes
I've made, etc.) and some new features (like status bar merging and full
support for UNO status bar controllers - see examples on
odk/examples/cpp/StatusbarController -, and some other more to come).
