    I edited the channelnames.lua file so it would format the bnet whispers to be in the same fashion as regular whispers added @ line 33

    ["BN Whisper From"] = "[BN:From]",
    ["BN Whisper To"] = "[BN:To]",
    ["away BN Whisper To"] = "<Away>[BN:To]",
    ["busy BN Whisper To"] = "<Busy>[BN:To]"

    Added @ line 179

    text = gsub(text, L["To (|HBNplayer.-|h):"], channels["BN Whisper To"] .. (mod.db.profile.addSpace and " %1:" or "%1:"))
    text = gsub(text, L["To <Away>(|HBNplayer.-|h):"], channels["away BN Whisper To"] .. (mod.db.profile.addSpace and " %1:" or "%1:"))
    text = gsub(text, L["To <Busy>(|HBNplayer.-|h):"], channels["busy BN Whisper To"] .. (mod.db.profile.addSpace and " %1:" or "%1:"))
    text = gsub(text, L["(|HBNplayer.-|h) whispers:"], channels["BN Whisper From"] .. (mod.db.profile.addSpace and " %1:" or "%1:"))

    And added the localization to the enUS.lua file @ line 81

    L["To (|HBNplayer.-|h):"] = true
    L["To <Away>(|HBNplayer.-|h):"] = true
    L["To <Busy>(|HBNplayer.-|h):"] = true
    L["(|HBNplayer.-|h) whispers:"] = true

    Default UI added "R" for Chat Whisper and "Shift+R" for Re-Whisper now.

    I also don't get class coloring except for /who and Guild channels.

    I haven't been able to isolate my problems to chatter, or cellular, but my reply keybind "R" usually does not work.

    Also, player names are working for guild chat, but no other channels are showing the colors.

    ok i pushed up a fix for scrolling and timestamps to be more sane and work as you check/uncheck the boxes in the blizz options.

    I have looked through the Blizzard settings and it appears my window background no longer changes from black to transparent and then back to black when a mouseover occurs. Is this just the patch or a setting I am missing?

    Playernames should be fixed.

    Any idea about the "Player Names" module not working yet? I mentioned it before but didn't get any response so I was just making sure it didn't slip too far down before anyone saw it.

    Thats the biggest thing I miss, not seeing names colored by class in my chat, it makes it so much easier inviting for groups knowing exactly what everyone is who sends me a tell :p
