Using C++, I recently upgraded to VS2019 from VS2017, and of course things in my code has to break. The worst part is the code worked great in debug mode but breaks in release mode. I know it is my fault for not reading the documentation carefully enough and that is how it bit me.

Take this code:
int x = (int)log10(0.0);
I now know that taking the log of 0.0 is undefined, but previous versions of VS and VS2019 in debug would return 0, so my code worked as I was expecting and as it has worked for many years. But when I built my program in release mode it was giving me all sorts of errors. Turns out that now log10(0.0) returns -1, or more correctly 0xFFFFFFFF.

So just remember to read the documentation, and if you don't, just because it works on your machine now, does not mean it will work on all machines forever.
Within you lies the power for good - Use it!
