Done and done. Uploading 0.1.1 now and should be approved sometime in the near future

It is pretty big, mainly due to the Ace libraries. Though they'll only get loaded once amongst all your addons, so usually isn't an issue in terms of memory usage.

Tabs are better using this for sure. Great addon.


Is there anyway to remove the Additional Filters tab on the combat log completely? Anytime you mouse over the combat log, the filters tab pops up, even if you remove all the filters. Pretty annoying tab imo.
