Link modal (wpLink) changes in WordPress 4.5

There is a new and improved inline links dialog in the Visual Editor, see #33301. When the users type in the URL field, it uses jQuery UI Autocomplete to search for local posts and pages.

The old modal dialog (a.k.a. wpLink) is still used for “Advanced” link options. It was simplified, the infinite scrolling bottom part was removed. Now this dialog also uses UI Autocomplete on the URL field to search for posts and pages. That makes it consistent with the inline dialog and leaves more space for plugins that want to add additional settings in it.

If your plugin uses or extends wpLink, please test it now to confirm all is working properly.
