Update on my button icon situation mentioned previously... my Cam macro to move the camera further back finally actually has my selected icon for the first time since I installed Ion... it's been blank until now.

I think whatever change was made had a side effect, though, now any talents that I had on my bars, when I remove the talents, show up as invisible buttons... not blank like Cam used to be for me, I can see through the button but the border is still there. This may be working as intended but I'd gotten used to the ? icons when I'd changed talents so figured I'd mention it.

also having this issue! Also, when I tried to drag spells onto my bar for my moonkin, I had to drag a few of them twice (first time it just erased former spell, second time it "took" the new spell correctly) and for one spell (starfire) I finally gave up and had to edit the macro manually. When I did, even though the button looked blank, it had a feral ability (again, I was in Moonkin spec), so basically it was failing to rewrite the spell on the button, and since the button was for a different spec it was (as reported is happening for others) appearing blank even though the code was apparently there.

If you're wondering what to comment out, it's in Ion_buttons.lua, lines 811 and 812:

print(texture)
print("hit")

I've had a similar issue since installing it, lines like:

Interface\Icons\Ability_Miling (sic, only one L)
hit

Figured it was debug code left in as well.

I'm also experiencing a few other quirks (blank icons instead of ? when abilities don't exist (changed talent/spec, etc), rep bar that isn't responsive, blank button for an ability that did exist (only happened once)). Those didn't happen enough to have any real detail to offer.

I had to comment out a line that did print("hit") and a line above it in the latest version to prevent my chat box being spammed constantly. Is this some sort of debugging thing you accidentally left in?

For him, with his older computer, it's very obvious in even the first arena game we play. For me, it starts being visible after about 25 subsequent arena games, at which point, it's really horribly laggy.

We have both configured all our characters with various macros and now we depend on Ion, so we'd rather not have to disable it.

We are both using the latest Ion release from October 29, 2013.
I have been informed this appears to be related to a cooldown addon, though I forget which one it is.

Thanks for the news update buddy. I usually don't follow social media outlets. I can't wait for Ion I was a HUGE user and promoter for Macaroon. Can't wait and I wish you the best of luck :-)

Update: So it seems that the most requested feature is of course profiles. I have been hard at work getting them done and have had some success so far. Stay tuned...

Maul!

Dude! Welcome Back! It is great to see you again. I've been using your addon since Trinity days and couldn't play without it. Thank you for ION.

Thanks for all of the responses I now have a working "to do" list!

I will probably get a minor update done soon to address the broker bug using the solution provided by corveroth (thanks corveroth!)

Hahaha! You're kidding, right? I'm an addon whore, at one point I was running 135 addons and easily my favorite was Macaroon! There are other addons I like a lot but Macaroon! was the foundation of my UI. I stopped playing WoW for 3 years and I'm gettin' kinda old so I don't remember if I ever donated or not (honestly it would surprise me if I didn't as much as I liked Macaroon!) but if you make Ion even remotely as good as Macaroon! was I'll donate whether I did before or not.
