Upgrading plugins
1. Check for changes in core APIs

Read lib/upgrade.txt to check for the deprecations and core API changes, make sure you applied them to your plugin. Note that entries there are not sorted by priority but rather by integration time. 
Below is the list of upgrade.txt files that contain information about upgrading from Moodle 3.4 to Moodle 3.5 (note that if you upgrade from earlier versions there may be more files):

lib/upgrade.txt changes to various core APIs, deprecations, functions removal
calendar/upgrade.txt changes to Calendar API
search/upgrade.txt changes to Global search API
message/upgrade.txt changes to Messages API
course/upgrade.txt changes to Course API
2. Check for changes in the API of your plugin type

Below is the list of plugin types that had API changes between Moodle 3.4 and 3.5:

enrol/upgrade.txt Enrolment method plugins
mod/upgrade.txt Activity module plugins
auth/upgrade.txt Authentication plugins
course/format/upgrade.txt Course format plugins
question/type/upgrade.txt Question type plugins
3. Check for changes in the depended plugins

If your plugin depends on another plugin or calls methods from another plugin, read upgrade.txt in this plugin directory (if it exists). Below is the list of standard plugins that had changes between 
Moodle 3.4 and 3.5:

tool_mobile, tool_usertours, mod_assign, mod_feedback, mod_quiz, mod_scorm, theme_boost

4. Do a smoke test of your plugin with developer debugging mode

Make sure to check on both Boost and Clean themes. Bootstrap was upgraded in Moodle 3.5

5. Run all behat and phpunit tests
