I am trying to convert some (rather simple) plugins from version 7.3 to 8.1. Now, I am sorely missing a method:
I get an object's tag list by
Then I determine the type of the tag by
Finally I want to check the plugin's ID. There used to be a method
, but it is gone (sez da compiler), with afaics no other method in the class hierarchy doing quite what I want (besides, the class PluginTag is a pretty good place to look for such a method).
How do I get the plugin's registered ID? Not Tplugin, but the unique plugin-specific ID I (or someone else) got from Maxon. Where did that method move?

okay, after some debugging I found the solution.
Apparently, the tag's method
does no longer return the constant
for plugin tags, as it did in the V7.3 API, but the assigned ID instead.
*sigh* I really wish someone would document changes in behaviour like that...

Thanks. Though the need for explicit R7 conversion docs should ideally become less over time, I'll at least make sure that Atom::GetType() gets the right description.
