The Curse website was just revamped, and now uses the "short name" keyword from the CurseForge project management instead of an arbitrary number to identify addons. I'm sure Rolf will update JWU to work with the new site soon.
What do you mean "resolve" ? JWU was written primarily to update from files.wowace.com, and expects that anything it finds on your system with a name that exactly matches the name of something on files.wowace.com, is the same. If that's not what you meant, I'm not sure what you DID mean...
The search is fast because it's a local search on cached data. It's basically like using "Find" in Notepad.
What are you talking about? If you look at the PitBull zip you have one top-level folder named PitBull. Inside that, yes, there are many subdirectories for each module. Yes, you can pull each module out of the addon folder to run as a separate addon. Or, you can just leave them inside the PitBull folder and they'll run as parts of the same addon. If you want JWU to pull them out into separate addons, you must enable the option in JWU to do so.
I believe JWU will still be able to update addons from WowAce, in the same manner it currently updates addons from WoWInterface and Curse. Rolf is also working on (or at least planning) JWU2, and while he hasn't said much about it, I'm hoping it will include SVN capabilities, which would make updating from the new WowAce even easier than it is currently (as well as support downloading from the new SVN features offered by WoWI and Curse).
That's not very specific. Which addons are JWU reporting are up-to-date? What site are they hosted on? What versions do you have, and what versions are available that aren't being detected? I'm sure rolfba will ask for a log or something, but it wouldn't kill you to include some basic information about the problem. :P
And putting all lib's in a lib/ folder would require some .toc magic i guess, to get them all correctly loaded, im not sure how this would be done.
It shouldn't be done. First, you'd have a fun time sorting out the load order. Second, libraries are load-on-demand for a reason; if no addons loaded for the current character need a specific library, it's not loaded into memory. Putting all libraries in a single addon and loading them en masse would be a waste of memory, and needlessly increase load times.
im pretty sure they dont take up much memory / cpu if a lib is enabled but not used by anything.
If a load-on-demand library, or any other load-on-demand addon, is enabled, it is not loaded into memory at all (its code is not read at all) until another addon requests it be loaded. Thus libraries that are enabled, but not loaded, use zero memory and zero CPU.
Quote from Duskey »
Well most libs do start with lib, but there's also alot of other dependencies such as CandyBar, Deformat, DewDropLib to name a few of the ones I have.
All of those had their .toc titles updated long ago to start with "Lib: " on the in-game list. If you really have that much trouble managing your addons with standalone libraries, I'd really recommend you go back to embedded libraries. The wowace zip script generates a new zip every time an embedded library is changed, so as long as you always download all available updates, including library-only updates, you shouldn't really ever see different library versions in addons downloaded from wowace. Occasionally it will happen, but not often enough that it should be worth what is obviously a big hassle for you.
ok, but my WAU showed me 2 updated addons this morning -> then I got JWU which updated nearly every addon -> startet WAU again it showed many addons to update
No, we understood the first time, and Yoshimo answered your question. WAU and JWU have different ways of knowing what version of each addon you have. WAU cannot read JWU's version information, so it sees "this addon has no version" and assumes it needs to be updated. Likewise, JWU cannot read WAU's version information, and will want to update all of the addons it doesn't have its own version information about. Both updaters will delete the other's version information. That is why it is bad to use 2 updaters, because you will constantly be downloading the same versions of each addon over and over.
