Oh, and to avoid the "first" issue...First.
Oh, and to avoid the "first" issue...First.well then, i call second! :pseriously though, keep us posted on the features!
7th mmoui tastes good in my mouth...
Isn't that what curse client does?
Isn't that what curse client does?Its for all the curse.com haters.
Isn't that what curse client does?It's also free... unlike Curse.
Took 4 posts to mention curse. I'm surprised!ABOUT TIME IT GOT RELEASE BTW! <Insert idiot it comment about addons being free and how I deserve them> ;) :P(yay though ;))
Isn't that what curse client does? As far as I know, the differences between the Curse Client and Minion are: The Curse Client only works with addons hosted on Curse. Anyone can create a module for their site to work the Minion—including Curse if they so choose. The Curse Client and Minion both have a free version and a premium version. The free version of the Curse Client has ads, only allows you to update one addon at a time, and throttles your download speed. The free version of Minion has ads, but there are no other restrictions on its use. In addition to acting as an addon updater, the Curse Client also acts as a Wowhead Client to update their Wowdb database. It does this by default, without asking permission—meaning anyone who doesn't want to upload their data to a WoW database site (as some top tier guilds prefer not to do, since it gives their competition more information about the fights) can't use the client. Minion has the capability to do this, but it isn't enabled by default.
I think thats the same as WoWMatrix. I remember some1 said that some addons are missing there coz there isnt any "Donate" button. Now there is ^^Thats absolutley the same IMO
Thats absolutley the same IMOYuh huh.WoW Minion doesn't suppress errors or break addons though. :>
There are a number of very significant differences between Minion and WowMatrix, primarily legal, ethical and moral.

Minion can handle all the 'work' assigned, letting you get back to the 'serious business' of playing your game sooner.Gaming iz srs biznez.On a more serious note, I love the idea :D I used to use WowMatrix and for a couple of months its been doing its job poorly. Glad to see WoWInterface doing something.
Downloading now, hopefully it's a good replacement for the trashy curse updater.edit: Liking it sofar, the best feature is by far the update all feature. :) (Take that Curse!)
I don't trust it...But I guess I'll try it out.
Why don't you trust it? Lol.
I think thats the same as WoWMatrix. I remember some1 said that some addons are missing there coz there isnt any "Donate" button. Now there is ^^Thats absolutley the same IMOExcept WoWMatrix doesn't have the permission to fetch and redistribute the addons. It also frequently breaks addons and it's been known to contain tainted packages so the users get's keylogged.I'm looking forward to giving Minion a go when I get home from work.
OMG, it's soo sloooow :(
It is laggy as hell on my comp. It opens up 120 Processors of Java to run it. o.O
1) Does it contain ads?- If it contains ads, I just won't use it, ever. There've been too many problems with clients like this accidentally downloading viruses through their ads.2) Where does it get the addons from? - I need to know exactly where it's sourcing each of the files it downloads. Basically, if it's anywhere except wowinterface and maybe wowui.incgamers or curse, I won't use it. Any sites that aren't those three (or perhaps an addon's own site) can't be trusted.3) Does it perform some kind of check on the .zip files before it unpacks them, making sure they contain only file types that really should be in an addon?- If it doesn't, it should. Again, too many problems have been caused by clients downloading tainted files containing viruses.4) Is there an option to download the updates automatically, but NOT unpack them?- I'd much rather do it this way to manually check my addons. I'd rather it worked basically like a scraper, taking the URLs I give it and telling me when they're updated so I can download the new version. That's pretty much the only way I'd ever use one of these things.In short, I'm probably not going to use this, but that's a few ways you could convince me to change my habit. Open source would help enormously to soothe my fears, but I doubt that's going to happen :P
