This is a list of the API changes detected when comparing the current 0.11 PTR build against the last 1.10.2 live build. Many of the changes are covered in the 1.11 changes sticky post. I've marked those which are incompatible changes to existing functionality with !!!!, though I don't predict they'll cause any significant issues for most users.
