Quest string and QuestLinks were added in patch 2.4.
Quest String Formatting
Quest strings consist of the quest id and the quest level.
Note that the quest id is actually used by wowhead and probably other sites - you can actually go to a quest page on wowhead, and change the end of the url to the in-game id, and you should get the page for that quest.
