5.2 combatlog spell order changes
I hope this is the right place to post this even though the changes have gone live. I haven't seen these mentioned in any of the 5.2 lua changelogs I have seen.

Some of the COMBAT_LOG_EVENT spell orders have changed. I have found the following have changed


For 5.1, the order was: spellid, spellName, spellSchool, extraSpellID, extraSpellName, extraSpellSchool
For 5.2, the order is changed to: extraSpellID, extraSpellName, extraSpellSchool, spellid, spellName, spellSchool

Has anyone else found other events that have changed order?

This is a known issue:


Combat log is reporting purges, friendly dispels, and spellsteals backwards.

So it's a "known issue", but that doesn't tell us how soon to expect a fix.

Should we be updating addons to interpret spellids in the "new" order or not?

Probably, if you don't want users to complain that your addon is broken, but don't be surprised if Blizzard fixes it 3 days after you update your addon. :p

I just thought I should note that this issue is fixed in 5.3 so if you updated for 5.2, you can return to your 5.1 code now.
