Beta will be on the way in a little while (I haven't a clue when).
And it is time to get back to CensusPlus preparation for WoW V7.xx

As always I try to track WoW client changes that might have impact on our addon, but I don't really follow the forums etc. any more.

So if you see anything about API Changes, Please post the link that talks about the change here in this thread.

I am already aware of
http://wow.gamepedia.com/Patch_7.0.1/API_changes
and
http://blue.mmo-champion.com/topic/398157-new-logging-feature-combatant-info/

Since we can no longer trust data captured from nameplates, these changes will not impact CensusPlus.
Nor will the Texture changes.. though I had to scan all the code and libraries to verify that.

The combat info is irrelevant... but getting a link here could be helpful as other non-obvious API changes have had an impact in past releases.

The “realmName” CVar no longer exists. You can get the name of the current realm using GetRealmName()

Don't know if that applies but sounds potentially quite relevant Wink

thanks for the link... it did sound like something to look at..
Unfortunately that last item Rygarius mentioned was old out of date info
Pre WOD that variable could exist on your client.. but it was a bogus generation.

that is when we (addon dev community) had to discover the real way to uniquely identify realms regardless of which region whey were located.
We had looked at the BN api calls... but decided that
1: they were too flaky
2: since the realID and BN cross game chat was optional... it probably wouldn't work.
3: eg. anyone using Blizzards Voice option instead of Vent or TS? didn't think so.

Addons are not yet enabled on alpha (nor likely to be anytime soon going by the crashiness while just walking around minding my own business looking at stuff!), but if you're looking for testers when they are enabled, I now have access, seems I have good luck with invites lately Smile Or if you want anything else checked out in the meantime while we wait for addons to be enabled, let me know Smile

Gnome hunters are adorable btw Wink

Have addons ever been enabled for Alpha?
I have always thought the api code doesn't get enable until mid to late Beta.. once the base code is mostly stable.

I have never had the luck to get an alpha invite... but then, I wouldn't expect one.. considering I don't pay Blizzard much money these days.
(considering I stopped playing mid to late WotLK.)

Well... there's never been an alpha which invited normal players before - the invites is like a more limited version of past betas (well if I just got in it really is normal people now, initially it was mainly streamer/fansite types or hardcore raiders), although in other ways it's more alpha-ish, by all I've read stability and completeness are below what we normally have in beta. I reckon we can't really look at this as the same as past betas, they seem to be progressing in a different way to usual Smile

Staring at the download bar and wishing it'd hurry up, I've had a look round Dalaran but don't want to go further till I don't have slowdowns while the game catches up on stuff it didn't download yet Razz

Currently forseeing plenty of demand for new addons that put back all the interface options that just got removed... there's at least 3 things I will be immediately getting an addon to fix if they don't return the choice to us by default *sigh*
