Hmmmm… not a lot of add-on updates

On patch days, I usually like to go around the add-on web sites (Curse and WowInterface) and update my mods.  Most of the time, the add-on authors have been messing around on the PTR in advance and they have a new version of the add-on all posted and ready to go when the patch drops.

Not today, though.  After browsing around, I found that almost every add-on I use was last updated back in April or for some of in June.  I only found a couple that were updated in the past few days.

I’m not going to complain – the add-on authors do a great job with little or no recognition or compensation, so if it takes a little time for them to update then I’m fine with that.  But its worth knowing that we’ll probably have to check the “Enable Out-of-Date Add Ons” option when we finally get into the game tonight.  And if you play a class that’s seeing any significant mechanics changes (and there are a few) you might see some inaccuracies in what your add-ons are telling you.

    There wasn’t a wide range of API changes this time around, especially compared to usual. Clicking “load outdated addons” should be sufficient for almost all addons.

    I have a bunch of stuff not working. I think the patch dropped earlier than most people were expecting.

    Did you have a chance to try any of the new content last night? The five man is really, really fun on both regular and heroic. For both, it’s a real loot fiesta, too! We took a shot at the 10-man and got the first boss phase down and were working through the second, but had to quit for a scheduled 25 man Ulduar.

    I’m really impressed with this content patch.
