    Actually I think that his version could replace the old one. I want to fix it for 4.0 this weekend.

    Will you be incorporating some of the improvements from the Lilsparky Clone? In particular the "how far can i level with this recipe"-bar

    It's the first version compatible with wow 4.0. I will fix some bugs later.

    :O, this got updated. Is it possible to scale the shopping list window as well.

    Edit: I moved the window size around and the shopping list size changed. (and didnt see the drag option on the shopping list window), also the libpossesion error is still around

I was a die hard skillet fan until it stopped working and i tried gnomeworks now i wont switch back even if skillet is updated i love the look and feel of gnome works.

    As of yesterday, no. In fact it and item rack cause my frame rates to plummet from 60 to 2. So sadly I am waiting patiently for news.
