I actually do have a stub AceBar that provides most of the framework, including the ability to register plug-ins. But it's very rough and I have no plug-ins for it. If someone wants to take it over and go from where I left off or even start over with a new design, I'd be glad to work with you on it.
There lies another problem I starting to see over and over again. That individuals are deciding to create their own add to address their own needs and not improving the original. Leaving the user with many alternative addons but that feel usually unfinished. Now when looking for a addon to replace my currently abandon one, I am now confused by the pleathra of choices and most are not even updated to the latest v1.7 patch.
When the author of MyInventory stopped updating his addon, Ramble came in with MyBags to replace the hole that was left. Now I see that Ramble wants to address an important issue he has with the inventory system and all updates of MyBag are in limbo. I have switched to OneBag because of frustrations with bugs in MyBag. But what happens when Turan gets bored of World of Warcarft and OneBag updates are a thing of the past.
I am starting to wonder if Norganna is ahead of the curve with how she has handled the progression of Auctioneer, Enchantrix and Gatherer. I am really interested to see how the void of Titan Panel will be met when Blizzard finally changes the code to where it won't function unless someone updates it.
