(Seems since i already had a curse account, i cant register rolfba with my email, as thats already registered to Gof, from curse. Ohh well)
I am in the process of making JWU2, which will be a replacement for JWU, all the details are not yet set.
Unfortunately i started on my Masters Thesis 2 weeks ago, so there isnt much time for JWU2 atm. I am hoping on having at least a beta version out by the time WOTLK is released, but im making no promises. Thesis comes first :)
Try to write a PM to Kaelten, maybe he can help you ;)
Its working perfectly for me. I'm running a Win XP, & the current version of Java. All I did after opening it was adjust the config settings to my personal preferences, then clicked on update addons. Once that button was clicked JWU did its job & updated all of my old outdated addons. Granted it wasn't as fast as the old WAU, but in my opinion since WAU is no longer supported it was worth the extra 10sec wait to be able to update my addons to their most current versions. Great job, if I had some extra cash I would donate some to you. Keep up the good work. :)
It might not be able to update from WoW Ace, but it should be able to update directly from each author's SVN page if they have one which most do.
Also, I had a question as to which Java 6 update JWU is compatible with? I realized that I had all of the Java updates still installed 1-7 which is taking up 600mb of space that I could have back since I only really need 7. I also saw that Java has an Update 10 as well hidden on their site which I also plan on getting to test out the new Google Browser titled (Chrome). Is yours compatible with Update 7 or will I need to keep or redownload an earlier version to continue using your great addon?
files.wowace.com, what JWU is using is not updated anymore, the client "works" but pulls versions that are getting more and more outdated. Also, with the upcoming payed version of the curse client, I can bet my warglaive that no updater will be allowed to work like before - single-click retrieving of newest builds. Including JWU.
Got a few questions about JWU2, will it be able to work like the original? Pulling beta's/alpha's from WoWAce, and not only releasebuilds from Curse. If it doesn't, i'll have to stick to manually updating alpha's since there aren't plans for alpha support with CC as far as i know.
Answer is simply no. Curse are making payed updater, you think they will allow a free one to get the job done? Yes, you can easily make some program to parse the page, but once it gets public, page will change, it is easy to make life of the parsers hard
I like the JWU. After I got my wow account hack I stopped using the WAU. My concern is security. What are the odds that using the new CC I might get hack again. I'm currently using ZA/Spybot/Avast on my PC which seems pretty decent to prevent hacking but still switching to another updater concerns me.
Also the content patch is supposed to come in next week a lot of mods will be broken if they haven't been updated.
I try using JWU to update mods like they were curse mods but then it installed twice according to an in game error. Then I looked at the addon folder and it was a mess. Good thing I had recently install the mods on the beta and just had to copy them back to live.
Some people have mention that CC is going to have a cost is that for devs or users? Is it for users I doubt most people will use it. If its for devs only I hope its affordable because I know the amount of donations might not be a lot if any ;/
Anyways Roflba good luck with your thesis. Finished it soon! :P
2 versions - free that you have to manually click to update addons, 1 at a time, and payed, that allows to get you automatically the latest versions. And ye, they will be used, because won't be any alternatives ;)
Sorry if its double post,but i faced some problems today.
First of all that was my 1st contact with the application and i might say that is wondefull!I would like to thank rolfba for the great job!
Beside that i would like to make some questions.Since i installed the latest version of the app and used cleanup and backup variables mod and updated addons via the app,i faced some ingame problems with addons.
Basically,some of my instaled addons seems that are not loaded.Tried to replace WTF folder,and used reinstall all addons button but nothing fixed.When i tried to fix manually the problem via Char selection screen option,addons was checked so it was supposed to be loaded.I also checked it from txt file and indeed addons was "enabled".
Also i noticed that lot of new libraries was installed without the app askign me or something.Don't know if thats for good or its some kind of malfunction,just letting you know.
I am uploading the Addons.txt file so u can see addons i use.For further info please ask about the issue please ask here.
