You dont. You just update as normal. You dont have to manually force the index to be refreshed unless you absolutely must view the addons which have changed before you update them. It is optimized for the "Run -> Update -> Exit" workflow. If it werent when you ran the program it would make you wait while it updated the indexes, ie Run->Get Indexes->Update->Exit.
Nothing has changed since this was added back in January. It works exactly the same, i added the index age so you would be able to tell how current the 'detail information' is - The index is updated along with the addons in one operation <- feature.
I got ya. Sorry. I don't know if you know this or not, but it's still having issues with saving the positions of the draggable tool bars. Though the new UI features are wonderful! :)
Im thinking that i should just remove the "check all installed" command and just make it part of every update. ie. F12 would be just like F10. and we could eliminate a commmand.
If I understand correctly, you're going to remove the ability to pick and choose which addOns to update or... ? I rarely, if ever, update all my addOns at once and instead only update selectively. I'd hate to lose that capability. My husband is the exact opposite however and always updates all his addOns at the same time. I'd say having both options is valid.
He means eliminating the command to "select all add-ons" because using the "update all add-ons" option does the same thing. It shouldn't affect updating "selected" add-ons.
I like the new changes. The tabs are great. I especially like the Automatic Dependency downloading and the SV cleanup. I was wondering, though. What's the option for "Cleanup old version info" do? Is this the backup files or related to the change logs? I remember someone mentioning something about cleaning up change logs (i.e. when you're not deleting the old package), is this not implemented?
I'm not complaining, but the search bar doesn't seem to remember its position. Is this is a known issue? I've also noticed the issue with marking check boxes as those before me have posted.
As far as the ads go, they're really not that obtrusive. I do think that it would be nice if there were someway to "upgrade" it via donation or something and eliminate the ads.
Edit: I was also wondering: Is the SF page going to be updated with the latest version or do we *have* to use the One-Click method henceforth?
I surely didn't mean to offend you or anyone here. I do appreciate everything that there is to offer and don't mind helping out where I can.
While you may claim that we're objecting out of principle, it is possible that we're objecting out of experience. If some users wish to use the IE method, that's fine. Just don't force those who disagree to follow suit. I see nothing wrong with the old/existing method of simply downloading the package itself. As long as that method exists, I could care less. I simply won't be clicking ads that don't open in my preferred browser.
I'm just curious: Why is there not just a simple installer available for download rather than using Microsuck's Click-Once/.NET method? More and more people are using Firefox (and other browsers) and they're doing so for a good reason: IE is the swiss cheese of browsers. It always has been and always will be.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I don't have a problem with the ads or even clicking them, as long as it doesn't try to force IE. The requirement for IE to use the installer makes it worse. And yes, I know there's an add-on for Firefox for Click-Once, but that defeats the purpose of using Firefox.
After reading through this thread and then downloading the latest version, I'm kind of disappointed (but not excessively so) in two ways:
The first, that so many people who get such an advantage by what this site and the mod authors have to offer have such issues with the administrators taking an aggressive stance towards donations.
The second being that method taking is possibly a risky one. I never, ever use Internet Exploder. In fact, I block all of its actions as much as I possibly can. Using the IE engine to render the ads is fine, if only images and hyper links are used. But if they're accessed via XSS, that poses a real danger to the user. One that is completely unacceptable.
Personally, I have no problem with ads in WAU or the web site as long as they're "safe". There are a few alternative options, though.
- Implement ads on the WoWAce.com site that serve the same purpose but allow the user to control what engine renders them. At a later date, when it's feasible, the administrators could then implement a "Premium, Ad-Free" version.
- Make the in-program "ad" a simple donation button and add/remove a few features with that are available if you "Register" the application.
