Update for v9.0 (Shadowlands Prepatch)?
« on: October 14, 2020, 12:47:52 PM »
Topic.... Is this going to be updated for shadowlands?  As far as I can see, due to multiple errors, it is currently non-functional with the current 8.3 update.

Fair enough, just thought I'd ask, since I didn't see any threads on it outside of beta :)

A fixed version is available on my Patreon, and will be released on the abomination that is Curse/Twitch in a few weeks.

Thanks for working on the update and just wanted to say Autobar is one of my must-haves.  I miss it right now but I'll be patient.

I switched to WowUp for addon updates.  Hopefully they'll stay intact after Overwolf or whatever messes with addon APIs (don't know what I'm talking about - just stuff I read lately).  Anyway, it's a nice clean updater without all the Twitch crap.

I've never used WoWUp, but I can't imagine it could be worse than the Twitch client.

As far as Overwolf, I don't think anyone really has any clue what to expect.  Curse has been on auto-pilot for a long time so Overwolf's take over should either save it or kill it.  I'm fine either way.

wowUp just scrapes from Curseforge or something.  Like I said, dunno how any of this works.  Links of the addons go directly to Curseforge.  It may not be an independent Updater, just a front.  I just know that when I hit Update All, it works.  =P

Just avoids all the Twitch noises and extraneous geegaws.

Well dont hope too much on a real update :

All development on my addons has been halted indefinitely pending an official ruling from Blizzard. See this thread for more information: https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/t/is-it-against-tos-to-put-addon-behind-paywall/246031

Basically hiding update behind paywall is against TOS, so he dont wanna update XD
Wait a bit someone will take over his addons anyway

He simply pulled it from the Autobar page on wowinterface without actually following the link to read about it first.

Considering I posted in this thread saying "A fixed version is available on my Patreon, and will be released on the abomination that is Curse/Twitch in a few weeks.", it doesn't make you look very informed.

Also, since you said on WoWI that my addons are garbage, why are you using them?

yes on wowinterface someone fixed an earlier version of autobar (plus they explained how you fix the frame errors if you want to do it yourself) - I still get one lua error but at least the basics work...
