SkillUp replaces the default message recieved when a skill increases. The Blizzard UI uses the format "Your skill in [skill] has increased to [value]." SkillUp creates a new line in the format "Your skill in [skill] has increased to [value] out of [maxvalue]."
SkillUp options can be edited using the provided GUI. Type /skillup to access it.
SkillUp now supports extension addons. Three examples are included with this release: SkillUp+Ding, SkillUp+MaxLineColor, and SkillUp+UCase (all three are disabled by default -- you must go enable them if you want to use them).
SkillUp+Ding plays a sound when you max out one of your skills.
SkillUp+MaxLineColor colors an entire skill message when the skill is maxed (rather than just the normal skill name and current skill value).
SkillUp+UCase makes the skill name display in all upper case.
See the bottom of the SkillUp\SkillUp.lua file as well as the example extensions for more information on how to implement your own addons to extend SkillUp.
