WoW Launcher PLUS  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.3.1
by: Bl4ckSh33p [More]

Important Note: I am currently working on a completely new launcher for Warlords of Draenor and the first alpha should be available for testing soon.
New Website (more details coming soon): http://wow.bl4cksh33p.de


WoW Launcher PLUS (WoWL+) is the successor of "WoW Manager". Its purpose is to replace the default WoW Launcher and give you some additional features.

Now supports 32- and 64-Bit Live- and PTR-Clients!

Current features:
- View the latest News from the original Launcher or use a custom Homepage
- Open your Guildpage with a single click
- Create backups of your important WoW related files
- Launch your favorite Voice Chat Application with a single click
- Check the Status of your favorite WoW Realms from five regions
- Delete cache files on startup (useful for addons which track rare mobs via cachefiles)
- Launch WoW immediately after launching WoWL+
Additional "Tools" in the Menu on top:
- Visit popular WoW Websites (more to come!)
- Launch the original Launcher and the Repair Tool

Installation:
Just download the .zip file and extract it into a new folder. To launch WoWL+ doubleclick on WoWL+.exe or create a new shortcut for it.
IMPORTANT NOTE: WoWL+ does not change any WoW Files. It is a separate application.

Updating from a previous version:
Just unzip the new file in the same folder and overwrite all files. All settings (stored in "Settings.ini") should be preserved.

Known Issues:
- None

Feedback, Suggestions and Bug Reports:
- WoWL+ on Facebook (get the latest news and updates here)

Thumbs up WoW 64 Bit support coming with next update

I believe the new 64 Bit WoW Client is the reason for this request. It will be added with the next update.

is 64 bit really an issue here O_o
The concept i am getting from this program is that it will be able to launch wow (or at least relavent wow launcher), Have links to websites, show server status, & deletion of a creature cache file.

I don't really see why there would be a need for a 32bit & 64bit version of this program. IMO (as in 2 versions of the program)

downloaded and installed and it a nice interface. Can't wait to see when i can auto delete that creature cache file and be able to set the watched realm to my own realm or be able to have a list of realms watched.

Any hoot marked this as a favorite so i can keep an eye on it's progress. ^_^

Question concerns of the addon

I want to try this addon but my one concern is that if this addon is clean.
When i say clean i mean that there is no key logger or any junk like that.

If i see people start to give this the thumbs up & if i see the admins give this program a thumbs up then sure i will gladly install this and run with it.

just trying to be safe but so far sounds like a dream come true information wise.
