Addons Now Usable in Shadowlands Beta

https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wo...ds-beta/586355
With the latest build of the Shadowlands Beta, addons are now enabled for use.

Beta testers who have been in-game will need to exit the game and update their client to the latest version (build 35213) in order to test addons.
Those in the beta, how much is broken?

I assume there will be a sign up for authors for this beta too, hopefully soon.

Oh, that's good news, they enabled them way sooner than I expected

uhoh .. I think I will be busier than normal .. no wonder they started addon access early rofl

One of the major changes in 9.0 is a change to SetBackdrop. The TL/DR, on live, 100% of frames support backdrops, whether they are used or not. 1000s of frames between every addon and default UI, even frames that never see such as event frames have backdrops. UI team realized this is a serious performance issue. so effective in 9.0, no frames have backdrops unless the addon imports/inherits the backdrop template.
this means addons that aren’t importing them now throw nil errors with method “Setbackdrop”. This issue affects a large number of addons.
