Patch 4.2 PTR patch notes update for June 13

The patch 4.2 patch notes were updated again this evening. The updates aren't particularly robust, it seems most of the major class changes are done and over with for this patch cycle, but we're seeing more bug fixes and technical information showing up in the notes. For example:
  • Players should no longer incorrectly receive a message stating they interrupted a spell cast when they did not.
  • Anshal's Soothing Breeze should no longer cause combat pets to behave erratically in Throne of the Four Winds.
  • The Blizzard Launcher now utilizes Universal Plug and Play for port configuration. If your router supports UPnP it will automatically open the ports that it requires and your downloads will be unrestricted.
The full patch note updates are behind the cut below -- and they include a clear explanation of what will happen with your currency in the patch.
