Compilation of developer notes on changes in 1.6.

- Added update tables
- Added backup tables
- jos_backups ?? @TODO
- Added tasks tables
JAuthorization::getUserAccessLevels( $section [, $action = 'view'] ).
JDatabase::setQuery casts the sql variable to a string. This allows you to pass an object that implements the __toString magic method.
Both JFile::write and JFTP::write now use a reference for its second argument. Code like JFile::write($filename,'string'); will fail, however $data = 'string'; JFile::write($filename, $data); will work for both 1.5 and 1.6
JModel::getState will now take an optional second argument to set the default. $value = $model->getState( 'foo', 'bar' );
JModel has an addition contruction option and internal variable
__state_set. This is used to lazy-load model initialisation.
JTableTree as an abstract class for tree-based tables.
Made JObject abstract. It can no longer be directly instantiated. Use JStdClass instead.
JDocumentXML to allow easy generation of valid XML files.

On april the 9th. Louis Landry explained his intended changes to the way Joomla will handle XML-RPC in version 1.6. You can view his detailed explanation here []>.
