Efficient distribution of addons on patch day
Posted 21 March 2008 - 07:34 PM
While 2.4 brings few changes to the addon programming model, those changes there are affect some of the most commonly used addons around (Omen, KTM, various damage meters, SCL, SCT, etc). Having updated threat meters, especially, could be the difference between killing Brutallus or not.
Given the likelihood of further issues with the common download sites again for this patch, and the obvious desire of guilds to enter Sunwell and down bosses for world/server firsts, what plans do people have to ensure that they and their guild aren't hampered by lack of updated addons?
Is there a gap in the market for a P2P powered download site? Should addon authors be making their 2.4 versions available for download now?

Thankfully wowinterface and wowace were both up, unlike some previous patches.

I just ran WoWAceUpdater on my addons. While it was a bit sluggish, it got through no problem. I don't have a ton of addons though, and really the only two that didn't work on the PTR were (obviously) Omen and Assessment. There's a 2.4 version of Omen up, hopefully a new version of Assessment soon.
Assessment (this morning) still used Threat-1.0. I didn't get to test it, but if you want both versions of the Threat library running, it should still work.
I've run WAU twice since the patch, and had no issues. Great job by the WoWAce folks!

I really enjoyed using this mod in my UI, but I enjoy alt-tabbing and coming back to a clean screen more. Any suggestions for why this might be happening (or if there is a better alternative mod to use) would be greatly appreciated!

You are right, its rather a question for "What's that mod" where you could ask for an alternative and the answer would be Aperture over at World of Warcraft Addons - WowAce.com .
Actually, I have the same issue with Aperture as Earen does with CT Viewport. I'm guessing that the issue is not specific to a particular viewport mod, but perhaps something changed with how the game renders that sort of "blank" space after an alt-tab?
