We need to start a Codex page on migrating plugins to 2.7. Ryan's 
response below to a question on the Tester's list is one item...

Actually, it looks like we need a 2.6 migration article too. Both 
should be linked from this page:
and follow the style of the 2.5 migration article.

I can't remember what the changes were for 2.6 compatibility now, and 
(due to traveling for a while) I am also not sure what's changing that 
affects plugins for 2.7. If someone wants to start the Codex articles, 
that would be great. Alternatively, at least send notes to the Hackers 
list, and I can start an article. Thanks!
