Carbonite is now Community Developed.

We dont have access to official Curse and WowInterface pages so we can post updates there, maybe in the future that will be possible if Rythal will give rights to this pages to Community of developers. If this will not happen, we might have to change Carbonite name and make it separate addon developed by community with new Curse, WowInterface, GitHub pages. But we strongy belive that Rythal will be willing to add access.

As of now Carbonite, fixes, new features are only available on GitHub: https://github.com/mikepauer/Carbonite.

Many fixes and new features may be in testing stage but when they are stable and tested there will be new release on Releases tab: https://github.com/mikepauer/Carbonite/releases. I will add for those Releases new thread on this Forum.

Another thing is Bug/Issue reporting here on forums. Its a little bit mess and chaos so ill add thread with Bug/Issue reporting Template.

Thats all as for now, stay cool and safe

How can an individual hijack a Public Domain addon, preventing someone else to supercede their abrupt departure? This very important addon should not be held hostage by someone who cannot/will not endeavor to update it appropriately and in a timely manner.

Is there no one willing and capable to commit time and energy to keeping this historic, unique, and valuable addon alive? I can't even imagine playing WoW without a working Warehouse Module!

NOTE: My following comments are not related to the "Legion" expansion. They are related to only a few of the basic, core functions of the original Carbonite addon.

If nothing else, maybe some "Super-Guru" at programming can figure out better how to fix the problems with the CABONITE MAPS (Core Program). The "Fog of War" aspect is totally broken in the current Carbonite Maps, although it used to work years ago. Also, locating minerals/herbs is broken. They can't be viewed across zones and still cannot be "Routed" successfully even in their local areas (which is absurd). The game locks/freezes whenever trying to assign a route to them.

Carbonite PROFILES is STILL dangerous and a broken issue. It has never been fixed! These are just a few of the things which should be fixed.

I don't expect anyone to do anything about these issues. I'm only hoping that some kind-hearted, ethical person with friendly, literate communication skills will find joy in bringing joy to many other people.
