I am curious as to how many addon developer will be attempting to port their addons, if they could function anyway, to the Classic WoW version coming out.
Apparently it is currently running the retail API methods, so that means the Protected Functions are extreme compared to what was available in the 1.12.x API.
Things like TargetUnit() is not usable, so a lot of the addons will flat out not work if you try to load the 'version appropriate' one. It will have to be updated.
So I am wondering if there are developers that are looking into doing dual development forks for Classic and Retail if their addon is relevant for that version. I know there will be a large majority of the addons that just won't work, as the client itself doesn't support things however ... just curious.
Does anyone know of a resource online that outlines most of the differences between retail and classic addon API? I'd love to have access to a list of changes and/or the "typical" things that need to be modified, etc.
