SLDataText - FAN UPDATE - FAN UPDATE
Version: 4.0.6.1
by: Xilence [More]
SLDataText is a lightweight addon based on text based modules, which can be moved seperatly. This allows you to customize it to your own needs.

This is an updated version of SLDataText and SLDataText - FAN UPDATE
(It looks like the SLDataText is being maintained again. However, this Fan Update is still compatible with SavedVariables from before 4.2.0, as it's mostly 4.0.6 + extras, for those interested.)

I originally used the "official" SLDataText, manually updated it, and only recently found the Fan Update. After some inspection I noticed two differences:
  1. The Fan Update forked at 4.0.5 (the latest "official" version is 4.0.6).
  2. One thing I had fixed was not fixed in the Fan Update: The Mail "element" doesn't show the latest three senders like it should.

So this addon is SLDataText 4.0.6, with the Fan Update fixes and additions, and then my fix applied on top of that. It's not much of a "patch", you don't have to patch anything, it's a full drop-in replacement for either of the two versions of the addon.
4.3.1

* Fix "AFK" and "DND" status in Guild roster

4.2.1

* Merge of "Fan Update" (4.2) and "official" (4.0.6)
* Fix Mail tooltip to show the latest three senders

Problem here is that this appears as a patch for a FAN UPDATE of the original addon and thus slipped through the grid.
I understand the circumstances surrounding it originally being uploaded, however it's not a patch/plug-in and is, in fact, a stand-alone AddOn.

What bothers me is that it was updated (yesterday), uses the same version number as the current SLDataText version (4.3.1), and promotes other data AddOns in the description as if SLDataText is broken/unmaintained.

Sorry for being a bit crass about it, but IMHO I have fair reason to be a little irritated.

Huh?

I don't really know why this is being updated...and being called version 4.3.1, because it's not. Every version of SLDataText from 4.0.0 up is still available on the original SLDataText page, as well as 4.1.1 which was the last update prior to a full re-write with SuicidalKatt's fan update's applied.

I don't really like the idea of multiples of my AddOn being distributed on the same site while a currently maintained version is in perfect working condition (along with previous versions being available if people don't want to update to 4.2+). Especially since you're suggesting using StatBlock Core and LibDataBroker...like my AddOn is broken.

I fully don't support this copy of my AddOn, and if any inquiries regarding it's working condition come my way, I will not be answering any questions regarding it. I would prefer it removed, if you'd be so kind to do so at my request.

Thanks for the update ! works fine excepted for one thing. I play on FRfr client, and the currencies frame shows my currencies in french, with the correct values, AND in english, but all are 0... Any way to fix this (remove the english in fact) ?

Edit : in fact Starting Honor (conquest, justice also) points don't work either... always showing 0

Seems like "Framerates" option is broken. I enable it, but it does no appear.

Edit: Sorry, I am an idiot. Had the older version installed. Works fine, and thanks so much for the update!
