In addition to the three ways we currently have for you to maintain your addons on WoWInterface – manual upload/update or either of our two version control repositories, SVN and Git - we are happy to announce two more!
  1. An API that allows you to add a line to your addon from wherever you are currently working on it (ie SourceForge, GitHub, etc.) to have it push to WoWInterface whenever you push a new release version; and
  2. An AddOn Packager Proxy tool written by p3lim, in conjunction with our API.
See this thread for more details.

From Dolby and I and all of our volunteers, we hope you have a happy and safe holiday season and that your new year is filled with peace and joy.


*Please note that due to the holidays, approval of addons or responses to messages may be slower than usual as everyone will be spending time celebrating the season with family and friends.
Authors:

6.0.2 is now live. If you are sure your addons are 6.0.2 ready, go ahead and tag them with the ‘compatible with 6.0’ tag. If you aren’t sure, upload your beta versions to the WoD Beta category for now.

There is quite a bit of information about the UI API and graphics changes already posted in this thread, as well as in our WoD Beta API and Graphics Changes forum that you are welcome to check out. Further contributions are always appreciated.

Once you've uploaded them for testing, be sure to check back for any bug reports and other feedback users may provide, whether in the comment field on the download page of your addon, or in the WoD Beta forums.


Users:

In addition to the live addons that are 6.0 ready, there are a number of beta versions available as mentioned above, in our WoD download category.

As you check out the beta ones, please remember that they are exactly that, beta versions, and have only been tested in another beta environment. There is a very good possibility that many of them may have bugs. Give the authors feedback letting them know any bugs you find. You can post it in the comments on the download page for that addon, or in the WoD beta forums.


As well, we have our WoD AddOn Survival Guide set up and will be continuing to keep it updated through until after the expansion goes live.


This is also a perfect time to grab Minion, our all new addon manager. Easily keep your addons current as the authors release their 6.0 compliant versions!


Finally, be sure to check out the Survival Guides posted by our sister site, Wowhead.

Happy Hunting!


*Always be sure to make a backup of your AddOn and Saved Variables folders before running Minion or manually updating your addons.

... is scheduled to crash into Azeroth on Tuesday, October 14. Featuring new content heralding the Iron Horde incursion, updates to the skills and abilities for every class, and a host of gameplay adjustments, this overture to Warlords of Draenor is coming at you armed to the teeth.



Treacherous Developments
The Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands has turned blood red. Hundreds of strange-looking orcs are violently pouring into Azeroth, killing everything that stands in their path. Nethergarde and Okril’lon have already fallen, and while the Horde and the Alliance moved as quickly as they could to get reinforcements to their people, they are too late. The Iron Horde invasion has begun.

In this desperate hour, King Wrynn and Warchief Vol’jin have called upon their greatest champions to join the front lines in the Blasted Lands and do whatever they can to stop the Iron Horde . . . before the rest of Azeroth falls before them.
Word of this surprise attack sends players rushing to the Blasted Lands to reckon with the barbarous infiltration. After the fall of a high ranking Iron Horde general named Gar’mak Bladetwist, you’ll report what you’ve witnessed in the Blasted Lands to King Wrynn or Warchief Vol’jin. It’s apparent to both the Horde and the Alliance that this is only the first salvo in a much larger conflict, and the only way to win is to take the fight directly to the Iron Horde . . . by journeying through the Dark Portal into Draenor.

The Infiltration of Blackrock Spire
An advance party of Iron Horde forces has barged right out of the Blasted Lands and pushed all the way to Blackrock Mountain, where they found refuge and supplies in Upper Blackrock Spire. There can be only one response: the Alliance and the Horde of Azeroth must face this iron incursion head on.
Available to level-90 characters for a limited time, this specially revamped five-player version of Upper Blackrock Spire sets the stage for the coming counterstrike against the Iron Horde. Here, you will face Orebender Gor'ashan, Kyrak, and Commander Tharbek as you begin to take the fight to the enemy and sharpen the skills—and swords—you’ll need to succeed on an unwelcoming alien world.

Prepare yourself. Draenor is waiting.

Remember that you now have the ability to ‘tag’ your addon for more than one download category. So if you think that your live version will also work in the beta, you can just add the WoD Beta category as an optional category. (Make sure that you are tagging it for the WoD Beta cat, not the regular Beta cat.) If, however, you think that the one for beta is going to be incompatible on the current live game, you can upload a completely separate file to the WoD beta category as per usual.

Once you've uploaded them for testing, be sure to check back for any bug reports and other feedback users may provide, whether in the comment field on the download page of your addon, or in the WoD Beta forums.

Also note that we have added the 'compatible with 6.0' tag now, so go ahead and tag your addons when they're ready.


Users:

As mentioned above, we've got our WoD beta forums and a download category set up for you to use. There's already 73 addons that have been released/tagged for testing in WoD, with more being uploaded all the time. As you check them out, please remember that many of these are beta versions of these addons, and have only been tested in another beta environment. There is a very good possibility that many of them may have bugs. Give the authors feedback letting them know any bugs you find. You can post it in the comments on the download page for that addon, or in the WoD beta forums.

As well, we will have our WoD AddOn Survival Guide set up and will be continuing to keep it updated through until after the expansion goes live.

Happy Hunting!

For those of you who may have missed it (easily done since we hadn’t made a big announcement about it, until now), our new Minions* are here. They are a completely new breed than our first batch (rewritten from the ground up). We’ve had some of them out for a little while now, and we’re ready to make their return more widely known.

Please note, however, that they are still very young (aka, Beta). Most people that have been using them are having no problems with them, but there are some bad habits (bugs) that we are still trying to pin down. As well, they aren't fully grown yet (not yet feature complete), so as we teach them new tricks (add new features) there is always the possibility of new bad habits (bugs) being introduced.

We would really like to have more people using/testing their very own Minions now, but we also want to make sure that everyone is aware of their Beta status. It is really important to have people who are willing to help us make them better by submitting bug reports when they run into things. Please see this thread to get the information on what we need when you submit a bug report.

You can go here to get your very own Minion. Please use this forum to provide feedback and receive support.


*Minion: A free, eager-to-please little monster lackey of your own, with enough sense to stick to orders! Minion can handle all the 'work' assigned, letting you get back to the 'serious business' of playing your game sooner.

Always be sure to make a backup of your AddOn and Saved Variables folders before running Minion.
Our sister site, Wowhead, has written up a great guide covering the UI and Quality of Life Improvements coming with WoD.
Warlords of Draenor has numerous quality of life changes, ranging from the addition of the Toy box for account-wide vanity items to a new Void Storage tab and a greatly-expanded Group Finder tool!

This guide covers all of the improvements we've noticed in the beta--we've previously covered some in the Alpha, but there have been some changes.

Highlights include:
  • The new Toy box feature, which allows users to save vanity items to a special Collections tab and free up tons of bag space. These vanity items become account-bound as well.
  • Players have an additional void storage tab.
  • New reagents bank and you can craft items keeping the materials in your bank.
  • Special graphics setting specifically for Raids and Battlegrounds.
  • New Group Finder tool letting you create groups for various PvE and PvP activities.
  • Solo queuing for old LFRs and scenarios.
  • Polearms and staves can be transmogged onto 2H axes, maces, and swords now.

In case you missed the note from yesterday's patch, AddOns have now been enabled in the beta client. Perfect timing, as the first batch of names went in today and will hopefully be getting their invites next Monday evening.

If you are an author and have not already given us your info to pass along to Blizz, make sure you do so soon. I'll be sending in the next batch next Friday.

Well, I finally did it. I made a ROUND ClassButtons plug-in for masque. Not bad, either. It only took me around SIX YEARS or so. Hopefully, it's likeable.

EDIT: I updated the .toc file with the information from WoWInterface. Nothing more. /EDIT
Apr 21, 2015 - 11:46 AM - Tercioo

8.1 r12

Fonts

For this update, the biggest change is to fonts. The standard font has been split into two, Normal and Header. The normal font is used in ~90% of the UI for things like the Objectives Tracker, gossip text, and nameplates that don't have a health bar. The header font is used in places you might expect to see a header like as the title of quests or garrison missions.

In addition to this, the default normal font has been changed to Roboto-Regular, with the header font set to Roboto-Slab. The default chat font was also changed to Roboto-Condensed. These fonts are actually in the same family as the previous font, but with a lighter weight. Finally, FreebTip has been updated to always use the "normal" font as set in the RealUI options.

These changes were made primarily to provide better support for asian and russian character types, as well as increase readability and variety. That said, if you have previously changed your fonts, those changes will remain. For those that would prefer to use the old fonts, you can do so in the Advanced Options (/realadv -> Fonts).

Lastly, KuiNameplates made its own changes to fonts as well. Be sure to update it to the latest version.


Raid Tools

The other big change is to the Compact Raid Frame Manager (CRFM). The Raid Utility frame that was at the top of the screen has been removed and the CRFM has been given a new skin in order to fit in with the rest of the UI. I've also added some logic that will move it slightly to ensure that it doesn't overlap the minimap's info texts.

The raid frame filter buttons have been removed since they are only relevant to those using the Blizz raid frames. If you are using the Blizz raid frames, the filter buttons can be brought back by disabling a new checkbox in the Advanced Options (/realadv -> Modules -> Minimap -> Information).

Finally, The CRFM will only show if you can actually do something with it. This means unless you have the previously mentioned option disabled, it will only be visible if you have permission to set raid icons, initiate ready checks, etc. (eg. Leader or assist).


Astrolabe

The original author for Astrolabe has been inactive for quite a while, but recently a few highly skilled addon authors (read: not me) came together to update the aging library. This update is aimed at fixing the errors many people have been seeing, most specifically in the garrison mine.


AuraTracker

AuraTrackers for Rupture, Slice and Dice, and Wind Mushrooms have been updated. If there are other auras that don't behave in a useful way, or if there is a buff or debuff that you think should be tracked but isn't let me know. I don't have enough time to know each spec well enough to know what buffs or debuffs are or aren't useful.


Discuss this update on the forums.
