These are just a few notes I’ve taken while migrating a big component from Joomla 1.5.
This is the only reference I’ve found so far: http://doc.joomladev.eu/api6/
Another interesting change log: http://docs.joomla.org/What’s_new_in_Joomla_1.6
XML manifest modifications
They were just a few, the structure is more or less the same. Joomla official documentation was the starter for this task.
There seems to be better model support in J16, my model now inherits from
<span style="font-family: Consolas, Monaco, 'Courier New', Courier, monospace; line-height: 18px; font-size: 12px; white-space: pre;"> </span>
There is a new protected variable, to store default view:
protected $default_view = 'layers';
