I haven't been on the test realms myself, but from what I've read you will actually be in two raids upon joining if you were in one before joining a BG. You have the BG raid which has a different chat channel command even (its /bg I believe instead of /raid) but will still be able to talk to all the people in your current raid, etc. etc.
Squishy is working again for me without bugs (Tab, or otherwise).
I'm using the "svn update *" dealie to update stuff. I don't pretend to understand it, but that should update the libraries, right?
Yes, this is correct. If you are using the Update command on a checked-out folder (from TortoiseSVN) then it will pull the externals, as well.
To summarize externals: think of them like pointers to another download in the repository. When authors put addons here, you'll sometimes see comments like "updating externals" and "really, really updating externals." What they are doing is creating these "pointers." When you download an addon, Subversion will automatically download whatever it needs to based on these pointers. That way, these separate libraries and stuff can be developed, and when you check out an addon, it will automatically grab the latest one without you or the mod author making sure everything is up-to-date in whatever folder their addon is in. Subversion takes care of it for you.
Yeah, I also updated all of my libraries and pulled the latest Squishy down and ran it through AQ40 last night. Worked like a charm - no errors, all things reporting okay, etc. Had it set to show 15 people.
Yeah, they were definitely Ace errors and not errors specifically caused by Squishy per se, just Squishy causing them to be seen (if that makes sense at all :P ) I would get the error with loading, and then any time you would try to access the slash commands. It seemed that the slash commands would also be printed out twice to the console. I had noticed that there were some Ace2 library changes for asserts and such, but not all of my other addons were updated with their downloads from SVN. I know there are some suspicions with library versions causing a conflict, and that could be very well what I was seeing. My first assumption was a change in the libraries themselves that caused code within Squishy specifically to break.
I'll do a wholesale SVN update to all my addons tonight and then give it another go. If I see problems, I'll go ahead and document specifically what I'm seeing.
Using the branch, I'm getting errors on loading. It is most likely due to some changes in the Ace Libraries it seems. If you aren't see this, let me know and I'll get what the messages are specifically.
