    Great, then I just misunderstood your changelog. This was just what I was proposing.

    But, I know, I am a spoil sport, I still get "... with ID: [...] could not be found on site: [CURSE]", so it looks like there is some more to it.

    Anyway, great Job, Rolf. I really love JWU!

    As far as i can test myself to, its Curse who is taking along time responding sometimes, as the error im getting in the .log (As of 1.84), is Socket timeout.

    You can try raising the timeout value in the config and see if that helps.

    Or just find the addon on wowinterface / wowui, and then update it from there instead if curse keeps being slow.

    It's Ace not ACE, I'd appreciate if you renamed that in your updater accordingly.


    Done. 1.84

    Of course it updates them.
    But there is no point in scanning for updates twice.

    Until that last new version there was a check on start up and another one of every non-ace-addon during the upgrade. During that scan it would upgrade the recently checked addon.

    So, the point would be to keep in memory which non-ace-addons had to be updated and just do that during the update phase.

    rolfba chose to do it the other way around, which is not quite what I would have done, but still is an improvement.

    The basic goal was to have working non-ace-upgrades without redundant update-checks, which, hopefully, is reached. Whether the check should be done during the initial update scan, which I'd prefer, or during the updates itselves, which rolfba implemented, is just a matter of taste and oppinion.

    SunTsu


    As it is now, the scan for the non-ace addons is done when the program is opened, so that it can show you if any of them needs updating.

    Then when pressing "update" it uses the information from the opening scan (Or from the last press of "rescan"). If you add a non ace addon after opening JWU and then press update, it will scan this addon, since it wasent present at the first initial scan.

    I choose it this way around since i want it to show if there are any updates avaliable when you launch JWU, therefor it has to scan for the updates beforehand.

    New update:

    1.83:
    - Only scan for non ace addons once during a normal update run.
    - Importing an xml package that contains a non ace addon, will not make the non ace addon show up more than once.
    - Should detect and handle adds on Curse.com

    Enjoy :)

    When you load the program it scans for the newest versions of your mods.

    Non-Ace
    then
    Ace mods

    You click update and it rescans all the non-ace mods again which is redundant and makes updating slower. Is there a way to skip the 2nd unneeded checking on non-ace mods?


    Im looking into a fix for this yes.

    Im just very busy in RL atm, so JWU is running on a bit low priority atm :)

    OK, I didn't know that but makes sense now that i know.
    But still there are those temporary problems with curse. JWU from time to time tells me that addons don't exist on Curse, which they normally do.

    I don't know whether this is a problem on curse's side or on JWU's.

    Thanks for the quick reply,
    SunTsu


    I know what the problem is, its when curse pops up an advertisement, which JWU atm dosent detect. A fix for this will be included in an upcomming version.

    I'm experiencing that, too, from time to time.
    Looks like there still is a problem with the curse layout.

    Yesterday JWowUpdater did the "cound not be found" thing to me on SolarianAlarm and Outfitter. Today it doesn't but still won't update Outfitter though there is a new version. (4.1b5 vs. 4.0.1)

    If I can help debugging it, just let me know.

    SunTsu


    If the addon author releases an addon update as a "beta" release, as its probabely the case with Outfitter 4.1b5, then JWU dosent update. Its only the release versions submitted to curse that is checked.

    I get the message "DBM with ID: [4940] could not be found on site: [CURSE]" when Deadly Boss Mods is definitely 4940 (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/details/4940/), am I doing something wrong?


    Its working quite fine for me with that id on 4940. Make sure your using the latest version of JWU, and maybee just try again after 5min. Might have been a small network hickup.

    Ok, as of 1.82 the bug should be fixed:

    1.82:
    - Fixed a bug where some addons would get deleted if they were named the same as some "Split-part" of another addon. (For example, Mirror, and Quartz_Mirror)

    I think I tracked it.

    Try installing Mirror, close JWU, reopen it and install Quartz. There you go, Mirror is vanished.

    The bug have something to do with Quartz having a module named "Mirror". After the splitting its correct name is Quartz_Mirror, but Mirror is deleted too...
    As is, the bug is in the split-expansion-delete-old module (err... more or less, I didn't check JWU code).

    Anyway, that's the way to reproduce the bug.

    Cheers,
    Arzach


    Good find, ill look into this tomorrow, now its time for some sleep :)

    Wonderful app, love it, however...

    Maybe a bug, maybe something else, but sometimes some of my addons simply gets... deleted.

    Two addons (both ACE) I found very hectic about this: mirror and VisualHeal. I don't use any other program to manage my addons, WoW doesn't delete 'em for sure and my HD isn't gone nuts. So it *could* be JWowUpdater.

    Please contact me in game or by any other means if you think you need help on tracking this.

    Cheers,
    Arzach@Dragonblight-EU (alliance)


    When does this happen? Like if you install those 2 addons through JWU, then they are there right?

    If you then close JWU and then start another update are they then gone?

    Sounds a bit wierd, but lets try and figure out what the problem is :)

    Any special reason why it saves the .conf, .log and changelog at the home directory and not the folder where jwowupdater is? (using debian lenny).
    Also the self-update doesnt seem to work.


    Well it saves the .conf .log and changelog file in the directory where you run the updater from. Ie. current working directory. The main reason being that on multiuser systems, not all users might want to use the same settings.

    As to the self updater not working, how isnt it working? My own installation updated itself just fine to the new 1.81 when i released it.

    1.80:
    - Fixed parsing of wow.curse.com, they changed their layout slightly.

    2 different work-arounds.. after jwow has installed those addons, you can then set them to ignore, and delete the .tocs

    create the folder(s) for the addons you dont want it to autoinstall, then create a .svn folder inside them.. jwow will ignore them, and will not auto-install those libs.


    Yes atm these are the only ways of ignoring not installed addons.

    Not sure if i want to make an ignore non installed feature, but ill think it over.

    Going on a skiing holiday from today on, so wont have time to work on it for at least 1 week :)

    Thanks to Break19 there is now a MacApplicationBundle.zip avaliable from the googlecode site.

    Its for use with OSX, and to make sure its the latest version of JWU, please make sure to enable Auto updating after installing it.

    Thanks again Break19, and enjoy all you Mac users :)
