5.2 Update?

Is there a pending release for a 5.2 update to Ion?

So far it hasn't crashed WoW, but I have had the popup asking if I want to disable it or ignore.

Menu Bar was so broke I had to disable it. Every kill would pop up an error message.

Crash

I have a problem that I hope is an easy fix.

I was playing and my character wouldn't leave combat. Turns out, a background anti-virus program was running. I tried to drop out of WoW, but in the end, I had to Cntl-Alt-Del amd close WoW. Turns out, I could have just killed the anti-virus (Oh, GOD, how I wish I had done that). Nonetheless, when I logged back in, I got the primary message for this version of Ion, in the centered little rectangle, that it was Beta, blahblahblah, and a double line of buttons along the bottom. No problem, I thought, I'll just reload my profile. Except that when I click on the ION menu, the window is completely black. I came here and reinstalled the latest version into my AddOns, but no change.

Any suggestions? I sincerely can't remember the last time I backed up my WTF, it's been since October, maybe? So I may not even have the proper info in the WTF backup if the main WTF is screwed. Yeah, I restarteed my PC, as well.


Help?

From answer it doesnt seem he even tested it.Hopefully the same code that made it posiable to work with old Macaroon is same code thats needed to work with new Ion.
quote from Angosia- from Curse page of Drdamage "I spoke with Gagorian about this. *He agrees that the implementation is not straight-forward. *While we could reverse-engineer this (with a lot of time expended), he thinks the best solution is for the Ion mod author to explain the internal table structure. *To that end, he has emailed the author to ask for information that may be of use.

That's not a guarantee, however. *If the ROI (return on investment) suggests the amount of work expended to get this result is too great, it may not be supported. * Keep that in mind. *At the moment, it is a "maybe"."


Hope Maul responds to Drdamage authors soon.

Anyone know if there's a way to fix the tooltips of the new way some spells/abilities are handled in MoP? For those that aren't aware, some spells now change to another spell based on your spec such as Rogue's Eviscerate changes to Envenom in Assassination and Warlock's Shadow Bolt changes to Malefic Grasp in Affliction, among others. What happens with Ion is that it will still only show the tooltip of the original spell which, while not a huge deal, is a bit annoying. Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about:

http://i.imgur.com/rApdiCw.jpg

I'm mousing over what is Malefic Grasp but it shows the tooltip for it's original spell: Shadow Bolt. It does show the correct icon however. I've messed around in the config and haven't found anything.

Okay, so, trying desperately to figure this out, but I apparently am too dumb to be able to understand what I'm supposed to change.

I want my mage portals to open top to bottom instead of bottom to top like it does by default. How do I accomplish this?

Suggestion

Maul, I know you said you were planning on or are working on the profiles feature for Ion so I would like to make a request. In Macaroon once you saved a certain amount of them you could no longer see all of them due to there being a hidden limit it would display. Obviously, for someone with all classes who uses separate profiles for pvp and pve for every spec, this is a problem. My suggestion is to allow more profiles to be visible when saved in the same manner as Macaroon but without the hidden limit.

"Razer Orbweaver"?? What did they do to my N52 TE!? Thank goodness I bought 2 of them when I did. :P

Well Maul, is the controller any good? On my N52TE I can manage 3 rows of 5 buttons mostly ok. I wonder how well 4 work. If my fingers can reach them it's all good. I also have the razor Naga. Some of the Naga buttons are awkward though. Don't think they thought it out as a gaming mouse. It almost feels like it should be a CAD mouse.

Okay, so here is the deal...

A while back I was approached to develop an addon for Razer for one of their products. I immediately jumped on the offer. However, I was under an NDA and could not talk about it. That product, the Razer Orbweaver, is now released. While I am actively supporting the addon on Curse, I am now freed up a bit to progress Ion again.

I understand the frustration of anyone who wanted a full version of my action bar addon all these months, and there are a couple of other things going on that keeps me very busy, but now that the Razer addon is in release status, I can once again devote most addon coding time to my addons again.

I will try and get profiles out as soon as I can.

~Maul

Is there a way to set up a bar that hides all but one button until you mouse over that one button and the rest of the bar appears? If you have ever used the addon Autobar, I am looking for a feature similar to that. So lets say I have all my potions on one bar but you only see the bottom button of the bar. Once you mouse over that button all the other potions on that bar become visible.
