I have just checked in a major change to the Views API. Details can be
found in the advanced help under api.html (and the handlers and plugins)
pages, but the short version is that all handlers and plugins are now
separated into their own files in order to conserve memory and not
loaded unneeded code. This required implementing an API versioning
system, and the upshot of this is that a new hook must be implemented by
all Views modules: hook_views_api(). Without the proper use of this
hook, the *.views.inc files will not be included.
If your module includes its *.views.inc files itself or keeps its
handlers in the .module file, this is wrong and will cause sites to crash.
