Is there a place where breaking changes are listed with examples for the migration? I saw this linked on the previous thread: https://github.com/scitedotai/scite-zotero-plugin/pull/26 but to be honest, I have no idea what of those things affects my plugin (Mdnotes) nor what would be the required changes. 

Do you plan to release some sort of migration guide? (An example from my field: http://wiki.ros.org/noetic/Migration)

I'd also like to ask if there is any planned/estimated date for the release of Zotero 6, since I still need to reserve some time to migrate Mdnotes to support the beta, while juggling work and PhD deadlines too. Currently tracking that here: https://github.com/argenos/zotero-mdnotes/issues/133

Thanks!

This would be the place where these things are discussed. There is no centralized list of breaking changes, primarily, because historically API breaking changes to Zotero have been fairly rare and few. We do plan to migrate to a newer version of Firefox at some point in the future, which will likely include some breaking changes however and we'll consider creating a dedicated page somewhere if the list of changes is significant.

The first post on the pull request that you have posted includes a migration guide. If you need anything more, you should ask something more specific.
