The download link (which finally works when Google Analytics isn't loaded, yay!) seems to point at an old version. I clicked it 15 minutes ago, downloaded, installed, launched, and was immediately prompted to update again, though the in-app information listed the latest update as being 2-3 days old.
We released 2.1.2pl2 over the weekend. PL releases are emergency bug fixes and we do not always release a new 64/32 exes and dmgs for these. The download link will be in sync again once 2.1.3 is released. Luckily though these PL releases are well under 1mb in size.

"Detecting WoW-4 AddOns" took about 10 minutes to complete.
Can you please attach your minion.xml. That should help me to detriment if something was wrong in the config or Minion is ignoring the config. Thanks

That is the way its worked since we launched maximize. With the radius corners and drop shadow there is a 12px inset.

The 2nd issue there is interesting. I see that now and will make a bug ticket for it.

Are they AddOns available from our Stand-Alone Addons category?

Its not a matter of difficulty, its a matter of time. Its in our backlog but re-writing the client and fixing the 100's of bugs you don't see take a lot of time. Every bug has been a deep rabbit hole and fixing one thing uncovers tons more. I wish we could go faster.

I don't think JavaFX has this ability yet. I'll re-research this now that we are running JDK8 and JFX2.

I haven't had the time yet to work with the UI but I do want to work on this. I want to also provide a high contrast alternative style and possibly even find a way to open it for 3rd party styles. Although I think people will go crazy if they have to try and use the backwards jfx css.

I'll see if we can decrease the tooltip delay in javafx. I haven't gotten to resizing the version width. Hopefully now that we got the java8 re-write under our belt I can get back to more UI.

Scrolling quickly is still jumpy, and still causes an annoying strobe effect since the mouseover highlight doesn't update at the same time as everything else. Version number boxes and "update" buttons are also affected -- when scrolling from "addons that need updates" (perhaps more properly entitled "lies" ) to "addons that are up to date" you can see the "update" button and the red/gray version boxes are still shown on the bottom few rows for a noticable fraction of a second before the update routine catches up. However, the addon icons and names update in realtime, so I'm not sure why the whole row isn't updated at the same time...
We had a story in sprint a couple times for this. We are having trouble capturing the scroll event under windows and calming it down. It scrolls like butter under OSX but horribly under windows. We are trying to figure out a solution to this.

We should have a ( X ) icon show up to the right of the search input. I'll make a ticket for that. Thanks.

Hrm, I can get the <---> to show up when hitting the edge of the window and if i drag it over the addon stats area in the list it stays but if I go further to the left it will turn back into a normal cursor. It stays a <---> a little too long though and should be fixed.

Thanks for your feedback and I do appreciate it.
