ShoutOut was designed to make work of announcing vitally important instant cast spell information to the correct channels. This also announces the use of profession items, Engineer Repair Bots, or Banquets of Food, or Mobile Mailbox, or Mobile Guild bank. The system is designed with multiple redundancies. You can type /so list for chat commands to change a the adjustable settings to this AddOn. ShoutOut chooses what channel to announce to, Middle of the Screen (like a raid warning), party, instance, or raid chat. The system will check and verify the settings, and display the message properly.
If the instant cast spell fails, do to out of range, or out of line of sight issues or the like, this add-on will also announce that and what caused the spell to fail. For updated AddOn information check out the Change Log
This add-on is in "Beta Phase", but may still require some tweaks as to what spells are tracked. If you have any suggestions for spells to be added to those tracked and announced please leave a comment, so that they can be tested and considered for implementation into a future release. Please note as I do have several 85+ toons, I do not have one of each at 90 yet, and thus may not be able to test all spell choices before they are added to future releases.

1918.104.22.168: Corrected a minor issue that occurred during a cross server realm raid attempting to announce in instance chat, rather than raid chat, and doing so with improper name-realm format.
1922.214.171.124: Updated for patch 6.0.3 released on 10.28.14 Corrected formatting and announcement issues, now all spells should announce in correctly in the proper channels.
18414: Updated for WoW 5.4+ Build. Many changes in the .lua system that blizzard uses changed with the release of 5.4. Which of course broke this AddOn. I have corrected the issues, as well streamlined the system to faster response times even with high /ms latency delays.
16992: Updated for WoW 5.3 Build 16992. Modified some code to increase efficiency, as well as changed the Release Version numbering of this add-on to match that of my other add-on styles.
5.2.0: Release Version, added several more spells, as well as racial abilities. Modified code to allow for less cpu usage. Adjusted the output options removing some, while correcting those remaining.
