*We try to notify this list when API changes are made in Drupal 7, so
contrib and custom developers have a chance to fix their code before they
have the pain of figuring out why it's broken.

(issue <http://drupal.org/node/364470#comment-3782022>) **Theming the
"Submitted by" text for nodes and comments*:Previously in D7, the "Submitted
by…" text for node and comment tpls was created with a t() function that
resided directly in the node.tpl.php and comment.tpl.php. With this API
change, the node's $name and $date variables are joined together inside
template_preprocess_node() and printed as a $submitted variable in the
node.tpl.php. The comment's $author and $created variables are now joined
together inside template_preprocess_comment() and printed as a $submitted
variable in the comment.tpl.php.*

(issue <http://drupal.org/node/599706#comment-3781978>)
can now be changed with preprocess functions, allowing alteration of primary
and secondary tabs.  *Previously, theme_menu_local_tasks() took no
$variables, so preprocess functions on it were impossible. Modules can now
alter the primary and secondary tabs using preprocess or process functions.
Themes that overrode the old definition of theme_menu_local_tasks() will
need to update their theme declaration to mirror the changes to the default
implementation in includes/menu.inc.*

(issue <http://drupal.org/node/651240#comment-3769352>) **Modules can now
react to a change in an entity. *The entity controllers resetCache()
signature has been changed.
