Contrary to popular belief... I do still exists. And, contrary to popular belief, so does nUI ~smile~
I'm not going to bother with a long sob story about real life. If we wanted reality, we wouldn't be playing WoW, would we? ~grin~
So... to the point... I am, at present, working feverishly to get nUI6 together for Mists of Pandaria. I have been at it for a few weeks now, but am hobbled by computer problems among other things. That said, I *do* have nUI6 running on the beta test realm and I will be releasing the first beta as soon as I can nail down the last few major hurdles. I was hoping to have done that last night (Sunday) but couldn't work out a few things. I *will* have a version out ASAP.
In the meantime, nUI5 *is* end of life and will not be supported once MoP goes live. There may, possibly, be a short gap where a few of the features you are accustomed to in nUI5 are missing in nUI6, but I will close the gap as quickly as I can.
Real life issues aside, and in the past, I am as committed to nUI as ever and assure you it has not been abandoned and will be fully supported for MoP. And, with a little luck, I may even get to play a little again myself.
The one hurdle I do have very much in my way is computer problems. I have my hands on a 10 year old laptop that is getting about 8fps, and frequent crashes, with the plain vanilla WoW interface on the test realm and it's making it really really hard to code and test. I am in dire need of a replacement computer... one that can handle WoW with proper graphics support, etc. I'm on bended knee begging whatever remains of the nUI community for contributions to a replacement computer fund. I have a donation link set up here: REPLACEMENT COMPUTER FUND for anyone who would care to offer a contribution toward me getting a system I can actually work on. Likewise, if anyone has any spare parts for a desktop that I could use to build a system capable of running WoW well, I'm happy for whatever I can get. I really need to build a system I can work on as the current arrangement is making this painful at best.
I apologize to all for the low profile on the forums and in e-mail, as well as the nUI web site... it's just about impossible to do using the phone and the laptop I've got isn't a lot better.
I will try to get into the forums some now that I have a working computer, be what it may... but I'm mostly head down and crushing to get nUI into shape for the MoP release.
Look for a first release any day now. Once I get the first one out the door, look for very frequent updates while I add missing features and step on whatever bugs turn up.
