ClearFont2's most recent versions appear to have some serious stability issues. Users of RDX (www.rdx-raid.com) began noticing some interoperability problems this morning between the newest RDX release and ClearFont2, which Venificus (the RDX author) eventually tracked down to being soley a problem with ClearFont2. With just ClearFont enabled in the WoW addons menu (latest version) numerous users are reporting Error 132 crashes of WoW during the loading of the game world.
Venificus is not including this statement as a warning on a new patch of RDX -
This release fixes a number of interoperability bugs between ClearFont and VFL addons. However, there are still bugs in recent versions of ClearFont, with severity as high as outright Error 132 client crashes.
These bugs are unrelated to VFL/RDX (disable them and see if you still get the crashes, I did) and if you are experiencing this problem you need to disable ClearFont until it is fixed.
The only likely reason is the type of font being used. I have heard of the issue before ... but there's nowt I can do about it, since I've never seen a consistent reason for it - could be the OS, platform, how the WoW client was feeling that day, etc, etc.
Would have been nice to have been notified...
Oh, to bring people up to speed:
* The chat frame stuff *should* be fixed now :)
* Font packs should automagically add their fonts to the SML library as well, though I have not personally tested this.
* A spanish translation has been added (if people can add others, that'd be awesome)
* ClearFont2 isn't broken. Or is it? ;)
I updated my AddOns with WAU and when I logged in I found my the font in my chatframes to be forced from 11 to 14, and even after switching it back to 11 it will eventually switch again back to 14 on its own. I disabled all of my AddOns except for Clearfont2 and found it to produce the effect. Fix please :)
