1. There are two things that I have difficulties seeing. When a buff has been turned off on the main window and when a class is not present for that buff. Could you red out the icon if the class isn't present and put a red "x" through it if you've turned it off? (doesn't have to be those two things.. just something to help make it easier to recognize)
Currently it goes blank with no number when the class isn't present. And has a dot when disabled. I will look into making it clearer.

2. Ideally, if I have Battle and Guardian selected, it would just check for those two. If you have Flask selected it would check for that and if that isn't present it would fall back on whether guardian/battle are being checked. So, like in my case, it would say whether a person has a flask or a battle elixir and would ignore it if I wasn't using a guardian elixir. (The reason I ask for this change or "Flask or 1 elixir" addition is guardian elixirs aren't required for our raids for some classes as their benefits are minimal/useless for them.)
I think this is possible by making a separate buff check. You would disable the current one and enable the new one. I will add it to the todo list.

3. Could you make right click disable the buff and left click announce that particular buff status to the raid/party?
Shift left click announces to raid that buff. This mimics XRS. At this stage I don't want to change it.

And a quick bug report: I couldn't get the Battle/Guardian Elixirs to report if I turned off flask reporting and the person has neither a guardian or battle elixir on. Missing Guardian reporting worked when that person uses a battle elixir.
BTW the whispering is only for self buffs. To whisper the person who does the buff is much more complicated. For example MotW must be done by those with talent points spent and the same for fortitude and so on. If you have 3 locks who would do the soul stone? It's possible just complicated.
Preview of the new features in the next version to be released on Wednesday:
Version 1.70 21st May 2008
-- Added a feature where it tells you how long someone was AFK, Offline, PVP or dead.
-- Added a feature where Ctrl-click Shadow Protection and it will whisper all the Priests a list of who needs it.
-- Added a feature where Ctrl-click Arcane Intellect and it will whisper all the Mages a list of who needs it.
-- Added a feature where Ctrl-click Mark of the Wild and it will whisper all the Druids, with the most talent points spend in MotW, a list of who needs it.
-- Added a feature where Ctrl-click Fortitude and it will whisper all the Priests, with the most talent points spend in Fortitude, a list of who needs it.
-- Added a feature where Ctrl-click Spirit and it will whisper all the Priests, with the most talent points spend in Spirit, a list of who needs it.
Does that add all the whisper features you wanted? Or do you want locks too?
Don't forget that Enhancer Schamans use no Oils, they use Windfury enchant on their weapons. :)
Yes I know :)
I implemented temporary weapon buffs this evening. I hoped to get it included in 1.70 release that went out just now. However in testing in a raid to MH tonight it was not spotting a lot of weapon buffs. I think I just need to work out all the patterns to match so it's 99% done. It even checks if there is a an enhancement shaman in the peoples groups. However it needs to only check this for mele dps.
Still missing some stuff. I use RABuffs atm but im close to change it to this one, but... there is a big (at least for me) problem.
It has no "in combat mode". What i mean: If im in combat, i dont wanna check anymore if someone misses some food, elixir, buff, pvp, what ever. But battle rez, ss, etc. To hide ready check and the other stuff that you already used and dont need anymore would be great. There should be only a small window with a few options if your character is in combat.
there is no real need to reach the config menu in combat, and things like that :) 2-5 little buttons would be perceft.
The temporary weapon enchants code did not work. It missed most of them in a raid. In a party the range seems to be 100 yards but in a raid more like 15 and thus useless. I could make a helper addon that people install and use a more reliable API call like GetWeaponEnchantInfo() but it is self only. Currently I look at the tool tip text from the weapons. This is not going to be easy to solve.
I added code to do the window resizing on entering combat. But it would not work as doing things like hiding action buttons and resizing and other things are protected and can't be done in combat. The reason ooc can do it is it only shows bars which have no function such as when you click on them. One possibility is to have 2 windows with one out of sight always and swap on entering combat. I don't know. This is not going to be easy to solve.
Frustrating. If anyone users or developers has any ideas I would be interested.
