Does this affect only ZigBee? 

Do I need to recompile plugins that have compiled with 1.6.0? Since our 
plugins are not ZigBee related I assume it's not necessary to compile
and distribute them. The ABI stability should allow using these plugins
for all 1.6.x version. So if there is an ABI change can do you describe
it?
