ok

OK, so I get it's not today, sad to say, but I get worried when I read the "wait till it is ready for release" We are waiting for a BETA release right? I mean there will be problems, some probably major for the first few weeks (months?) that's what a BETA is. So release it when you want, its your toy. Hope its soon but I know there will have adjustments to make. Good luck, thanks for all your effort.

They never said for sure its not today. The actual person working on it said he is really pushing to get it out today.

1. You'll download your addons from the same place you are downloading them now. The difference is now it will be through one updater.. however;

2. It can only be as universal as site owners allow it to be. The only way you'll be able to download addons from Curse or WoWUI, or any number of other hosting locations, is if the maintainers of THOSE sites create a module for Minion.

Ah, touche. I've had the problem of adding words to sentences I read over the past few days. :\

Either way my points still stand!

In my experience playing MMOs since UO, I can't stress enough how important it is not to release something until it's ready.

Thats why it won't be released until July.

The point of Beta-testing is Testing and thats the version thats either being released today or in the next few days.

point is that software is ruely never ready or finished. It is a good thing to have a roadmap. Even if you dont stick to it.

I think this is moving great! I am looking forward to the updater. You are doingd great, Shirik!

This is true and I think they know that. They're only worried about pushing out a half working program and having it get a terrible reputation before it's ready enough to not have any major bugs.

Look at the Curse Client, for example, I tried to use it when the rewrite first got pushed out. It was terrible. I have not used it since, despite it being rumored to be loads better.

First impressions are a GIGANTIC selling point. While something like this can never truly be finished, it can be stable.

Rumored isn't the correct word, since it's others opinions about how they feel about it. Go try it yourself. Form your own opinion.

It is a lot better than the first few versions and now does just about everything right. Some may not like the pay for enhanced usage of the tool, but it still works without that. I ponied up the subscription fee, just because they seem to have gotten it right.

(I am in no way affiliated with that site.)

Well i tried the curse client and it works nicely.

I am objecting only ppl that thing a roadmap is not useful. Without one you wont be able to say when you are ready for release. Thats what it is about

There has not never been () a solid date set. However, in the "Daily Update Thread" it's mentioned that it may be released sometime tomorrow (Sunday).

Been waiting for this program for a while, was excited when it was announced to be in development, was excited when it was named, waiting until it comes out, and will absolutely freak out on that day. Whenever it may be, take your time guys, we can all wait.

Please note the time difference between Shirik and whoever isn't in the same time zone!

Think its GMT -5 or -6 (depending on daylight saving time). So lets say it's -6 that would mean when it's 6 am in the UK Shirik will have failed releasing the client in time =P
