    JWU is of now a discuntinued project, i dont have the energy to keep fighting the small hurdles that seems to appear on wowace and curse all the time.

    Thank you all for the time you used JWU, and may your time with Curse Client be as happy as your time with JWU.

    Small hurdles? I too noticed all the silly stuff and invisible fake addons/text/links they made (trying to conserve bandwidth? Yeah right...adding extra kilobytes sure helps...). As I said before it's pretty clear that mammon is the drive here - they have an interest in having the only updater on the market be theirs - and that people should pay to have it working right.

    I'm sorry to see JWU go like this - it was always the best updater for Linux.

    Thanks for all the hard work you put into this updater! Your work saved me a lot of time and made WoW a much better experience overall.

    Good luck in the future rolfba!

    First of all - jup2 is a nice piece of software!

    But - it would be a good idea to mark jup2 as beta version

    I don't think you got the point here. JWU2 is the best you can get at the moment - Curse/Wowace did a buckload of changes to their website so that only their own Pay-Us-or-click-per-update-client would work.

    The old jWowUpdater is no more. There is no "stable branch".

    moreso for the UI changes from jwow 1 to 2, and the loss of functions that imaginably were linked to wowace ?, i.e. external lib checking ? checking for required dependencies ? all gone.

    It's a terrible loss - I think Curse/Wowace are shooting themself by restricting everything to their own pay-to-update client. JWowUpdater (1) was near-perfect.

    Thanks for the new version with user login support!

    I'm kind of sadened by the way that Curse/Wowace has been making things terribly hard for end-users (and that means addon updaters too) the past couple of months.

    When people talk about missing features in JWowupdater and how annoying it is that you have to manually add things I think it's important to remember why things changed this way - it's not rolfba's fault for sure.

    I am happy to announce that i found some time during the weekend to work on JWU2.

    Woohoo! - and right in time for the big WotLK pre-patch upgrade party/hell.

    I tried it out and it seems to work very well. I guess having to find your addons once on the web and then add them is better than having to manually click update on them every single time they have to be updated.
