Aloft Alpha  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: Aloft-5.0.1-2418
by: acapela [More]
This has been superceded by Aloft-5.0.2 (and later), available on Aloft's "main" page.
-----
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-4.4.8-2386.

This version of Aloft is updated to work with WoW "5", aka "Mists of Pandaria", currently in beta test. Not all intended features are implemented or working yet (primarily, I still need to finish/test features for the Monk/Brewmaster variant).

This version of Aloft will NOT work correctly on the current WoW live realms.
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.

in the meantime, yes, the current "alpha" version (Aloft-5.0.1-2418) works pretty well for me on the live realms. i haven't seen any evidence of weird last-minute changes on Blizzard's part, and it got some decent testing on Beta. Blizzard's changes appear to be fairly minor, wrt Aloft (API function name changes, mainly).

sorry for the delay. it won't be too much longer (a day or two, i hope).

for those who have the cast warning module enabled, go ahead and set it to "override" for the moment. that seems to work around the artifacts i am currently seeing.

WoW '5' is now live. Hey, that rhymes.

Please update Curse, etc.

Aloft-5.0.1-2418

a new version for the MoP Beta/PTR, with a few fixes i identified.

i am noticing problems with the Cast Warning module. when "Override" is not enabled, there are problems updating the cast bar properly. when "Override" is enabled, everything seems to work correctly. don't know yet if this problem is in Cast Warning, or the Cast Bar module (which becomes active when "Override" is not enabled).

i will be working on this. in the meantime, enable "Override".

Since the crash seems to occur in the 'mana bar' part, I'm going to turn off the mana bar and see if the crash still happens.

sorry for the delay in responding.

you can disable the Aloft "Enable Startup Message" option (on Aloft's root menu), which will silence all of Aloft's startup messages.

Release: Aloft-4.4.2-2308

a new release of Aloft (Alpha) is available, pending moderator approval: Aloft-4.4.2-2308.

this contains a user-contributed zhTW localization (which overhauls pretty much the entire locale). if you play in the zhTW locale, please help test.

other than the zhTW locale, Aloft-4.4.2-2308 is identical to Aloft 4.4.1-2298.

Re: svn/git

update: just finished the reintegration back into the trunk. have not tested it yet, but everything looks good. get Aloft via the trunk.

Originally posted by zoktar
hi, im a repository kind of guy, is there a current repository i can use? git or svn, the one on wowinterface is at rev 2021
yeah, the project is a public SVN project here at WoWInterface ("ADDONS>Projects>SVN Repositories").

i am still in the process of bugfixing and merging back into the trunk at the moment, however (and doing some bugfixing along the way). at the moment, you can access the latest/greatest under the "options" branch.

sadly, i have not been in the habit of tagging releases (just got out of the habit, not an SCM special-ist... BTW, WoWI censors the word "specialist", don't ask me why), so at the moment you will be somewhat at the mercy of whatever i have checked in recently. i want to change that, and start tagging (hopefully with the next release). going to be 100% necessary at WoWAce/Curse, when the time comes, so i might as well get into the habit.

this version of Aloft is now "mainlined", and has been released over on the main Aloft page. i am releasing it here, in parallel, for those who have become accustomed to getting Aloft here. this version will be the last released here, until there is new "experimental" functionality to test (which will have to wait until after the main version is stable).

thanks to everyone who helped test.
Would you mind posting a temporary link to the latest version until WoWI approves it on here?
