Aloft Alpha  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: Aloft-5.3.2-alpha3
by: acapela [More]
This is a "development" version of Aloft (the nameplate addon). Please refer to the main page for that addon for a comprehensive description.

This is an ALPHA release. That means it has not had a substantial amount of testing under all circumstances. By installing this version, you are basically agreeing to help test . Please report any/all bugs with this release in the comments section of this WoWInterface addon page.

This version of Aloft is functionally identical to Aloft-5.2.8-2574.

This version of Aloft is updated to work with WoW "6", aka "Warlords of Draenor", currently in beta test. All modules have been enabled, LUA errors fixed (mainly to do with obsolete spell IDs), and all the basics seem to work on the WoW 6.X PTR. There were not many changes required.

I now have Beta access, so am incorporating that into my testing.

This version of Aloft will probably not work on current live realms... there is at least one new spell that doesn't exist there yet (Storm Elemental Totem), plus several that have been removed.
5.3.2-alpha3 (Warlords of Draenor)
- fixed cast bar LUA error and configuration mode update issues
- updated Ace3 to latest/greatest (r1114)[/color]

5.3.1-alpha2 (Warlords of Draenor)
- updated/fixed "Nameplate Glow>Recently Damaged Only" functionality

5.3.0-alpha1 (Warlords of Draenor)
- for WoW 6.X PTR and WoD Beta

5.0.1-2418 (Mists of Pandaria)
- enhanced to cover monk/brewmaster tanking
- added a check to avoid divide-by-zero problems in the stacked points (combo points/etc) module
- fixed some divide-by-zero problems in threat management (the MoP threat system seems to zero out perdiodically, during fights)

5.0.0-2404 (Mists of Pandaria)
- changed GetNumRaidMembers() to GetNumGroupMembers()
- changed GetNumPartyMembers() to GetNumSubgroupMembers()
- changed (MiniMapBattlefieldFrame.status == "active") effectively to (select(IsInInstance(), 2) == "pvp")
- updated Shaman totem manifest and spell IDs
- added Monk class color (0x00ff96), class name, and associated options, to code and documentation
- added Pandaren race short form
- verified crowd control spell IDs, added Shaman "Bind Elemental" to crowd control spell IDs
- combined obsolete PARTY_MEMBERS_CHANGED/RAID_ROSTER_UPDATE events into new GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE event
- no changes to Aloft related to GetGuildRosterInfo() (Aloft doesn't use all the arguments), or UnitIsGroupLeader() (Aloft previously updated away from deprecated functions)
- no apparent changes related to GetBattlefieldScore()/GetWhoInfo()/GetFriendInfo()

- TODO: add brewmaster tanking characteristics (for nameplate glow control)
- TODO: hunter trap snakes (specifically "Viper"; E/W Plaguelands and Uldum) and (possibly) DK bloodworms now seem to have names in common with some normal NPCs

4.4.9
- updated the cast warning module to detect animation update interval of 0 and use OnUpdate directly, instead of AceTimer-3.0 (seemns marginally faster/smoother)
- updated LibBabble-Faction-3.0 to latest/greatest (4.3-release32)
- updated Ace3 to latest/greatest (r1057)

4.4.2-2308
- merged in zhTW localization contributed by WoWInterface user aa9012456.

Had a very bad (but successful, cleared IC25 w/o LK in 3 hours with moderate setup) raiding experience yesterday without aggrocolored nameplates (play tank). Aloft-3.0.5-1709 fixed it again!
Tried to donate some bucks for your good work but paypal keeps telling me that you cant receive any money ;(

Thank you for the quick reply and clarification.
Looking forward to aloft being back in business and running again. And hopefully soon with casting bars (AloftCastWarning)

Thank you

sorry about that, should have made it clear. no, the cast bar is not fixed yet.

in the case of the health bar, i had the "Deficit" module ready and waiting, already replacing the health bar when the user wanted it. all i had to do is tweak it to take over health bar duties permanently.

i don't think fixing the cast bar will be difficult, but there is no existing functionality at the moment to "replace" it (unless you count AloftCastWarning, which is a bit heavy for the purpose of just replacing one little graphical element).

anyway, i will get started on the cast bar soon (maybe even this evening). shouldn't take too long, now that i know how this needs to work.

Once again, thanks for the promptness with which you fixed this. Couldn't imagine using any other nameplates in the meantime.

i think i know what this is. the "AloftHealthBarDeficit" module that i leveraged to fix these problems is an optional module. it needs to become an "always loaded" thing. i will get that fixed, test it on a fresh/empty saved variables, and then put out another fix .

thanks for catching this. i was too rushed to clear my saved variables and do some additional testing.

in the meantime (i.e. for the next hour or so), if you want to enable that module, go ahead. things should work with it turned on.

Release: Aloft-3.0.4-1706

a new release of Aloft (Ace3) is available, pending moderator approval: Aloft-3.0.4-1706. this includes AloftCastWarning (Ace3) as well.

this is an attempt to fix the nameplate health bar problems that emerged under WoW 3.3.3. nameplate cast bars will still experience some graphical artifacts (i will be working on them shortly).

the changes were, ultimately, fairly "small", but testing was not exhaustive, and there could always be side effects,. as well, of course, there could be additional problems using Aloft under WoW 3.3.3. please report anything you see.

i will go infuse these changes into the Ace2 version of Aloft, test that, and get a release out there as well.
