Carbonite 5.041 Source Released
 
Haavok and I have decided we will not be updating Carbonite any longer. We no longer play WoW and just have too many others things going on in life to devote any time to it.

We have decided to release the full Carbonite addon code under GPL license. I have stripped out or commented out various debugging lines in the code that were normally stripped out in our build process. The files should run as is, but I did not test my changes.

The source zip file is available here:
www.carboniteaddon.com/download

Thanks,
faatal

Thank you both for all you have done for the community over the years, Faatal and Haavok, you will be missed. Safe travels, hopefully we'll see you somewhere down the road in some other game.

Thanks Cairenn, you guys run a classy operation and have always been supportive.

Take care,
faatal

Rythal 09-30-12 11:17 PM

While I am sorry to hear it as you guys have done amazing things and worked real magic with your addon, I do want to thank you for releasing it and allowing us to carry on with it.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

Thank you for doing this. I know how life can 'get in the way' of doing the things you'd like to do, and it can be rough. Just know that you've made thousands, if not millions of people inadvertently happy for releasing this to the general public so that it can be updated and improved upon.

Best luck to the both of you in future endeavors. :D

best of luck to you both Haavok and Fataal and Goodluck to you Rythal.

Thanks for all that you have done for us, the players and users of your great addon.

Please do stop by sometime and say hello - I will surely miss you all and hope that someone (like Rythal) will take it over and add to it to continue to make it as great as your dream for Carbonite is/was.

Enjoy your work and family time!

I love this AddOn, thank you for releasing it as open source! (And thanks to Rythal for continuing to update it)

Thanks for everything!

This was the last thing I expected to happen. I figured pigs would be able to fly before this (mmmmm pork chicken wings /drool). I may not have been a Carbonite user, but still, thank you Faatal, and Haavok for the years you had spent on this, and even more-so for GPLing it in the end.

Website/WoWI
 
My only other question would then be are you passing on the website/WoWI page etc? It seems obvious who is going to be spearheading the revitalization and being able to do things like merge the topics form the supporter only forums or post the latest release to carboniteaddon.com would make Rythal's and the communities lives easier.

Kudos to all the great work to now and thanks for letting it live on legally!

If you have seen that Carbonite has already been updated and Rythal is one of the ones who can update (with Fataal and Havok). So I believe this part has been done, at least for the updating.

As for the supporters forum, there hasn't been anything really worthwhile in there for quite some time, we all pretty much use the general forums anyways.

The update on this site is the buggy one the devs released before deciding to pass on the torch. Rythals modded cata version is posted on his own site and I didnt see one here. carboniteaddon.com has been updated to remove the donate link, but still has the previously mentioned release. You could be right tho, I'm hoping they gave Rythal admin control on either or both.

And good to know I haven't missed anything in the other forum LOLOL

I have already transferred ownership of the project, along with moderation abilities in these Carbonite forums, to Rythal.

Whether Haavok and Faatal will pass along the site as well, however, is a real toss up. Unless Rythal, or some group of individuals, offers to pony up the costs for it, though, I don't much imagine they would. My guess is that it'll just poof after a time. Don't quote me on that, though. Imo, it isn't really necessary, the files are here, the forums are in place, it's easy for Rythal to open up his portal and use that for all of the necessary documentation, news reports, etc. But both of those things aren't up to me. Time will tell I guess.

Either way, WoWI will continue to offer Rythal & the Carbonite community every assistance we can. :)

Thank you Faatal and Haavok for releasing the Code and i wish you both the best.

And big Thank you as well to Rythal for picking this up :)

Ok I have just today on 10/1/2012 downloaded the two files of:

Carbonite-50501.zip & CarboniteGPL_5041.zip

I am not a guru at this stuff but I have looked in the files and see some changes and newer dates on files and all but wanted to make sure before I do anything.

Now mind you I right now have installed and working on my system this file I downloaded a few weeks ago of : Carbonite-5.041.zip

Now my question is this, Which of the two files mentioned at the top of this post is the one that I want to install on my system to get the latest updates, and has there been announced a new location where we can get any updates of the Carbonite Add On from now, (10/1/2012), on?

Thanks for any INPUT and advice you gents may have.

Snuffy . . . . ;)

Yes, thanks for everything guys!

It looks like they took down the donations link, but if anyone else feels that this would be a good time to drop one last tip in the jar, the last Paypal address I had for Carbon-Based Creations was <carvandude2000@yahoo.com>.

Download the one here from WoWI, it's the entire package with my fixes using the old code, the GPL one we don't know if it runs or not and is what i'll be using going forward.

HerrDrache 10-01-12 08:01 AM

Thank you!
 
Thank you!

Thank you for creating Carbonite and maintaining it over the years. It has made my wow-time even more enjoyable.
And now that you're busy in real life (while the rest of us are still hopelessly addicted), thank you for GPL-ing the code and giving Rythal access to whatever he needs.
Last, but not least, of course, thank you Rythal for stepping in and taking over.

You all are an exceptional bunch of people - best of luck in all that you do!
