    Hello peoples,

    I wanted to say sorry for not updating sooner, life has sadly not been wanting to give me the free time. Should hopefully be able to get back to maintaining this now, though new features are still not likely anytime soon.

    Big thank-you to mkong409 for tracking down the issues that arose in 5.0.4 and providing fixes ^_^ Feel free to post issues you have on here or on curse, tickets here are generally the best way to do it through.

    FYI, I have this updated and working on my system with 5.04. I'm not sure I've gotten everything, but it's at least operational for now. Here is a list of changes:

    First, I updated all ACE3 libs to their 5.04 counterparts, and then updated Core.lua as follows:

    Line 3222: GetMaxDailyQuests() has been deprecated, updated line to read the following:

    strText = strText .. strQuestMinionTitleColour .. "(" .. GetDailyQuestsCompleted() .. ")|r"
    

    Line 4035: GetNumPartyMembers() has been renamed to GetNumGroupMembers():

    local intPartyMembers = GetNumGroupMembers();
    

    Line 4982: ACHIEVEMENT_CRITERIA_PROGRESS_BAR has also been deprecated, I've found this code in other updated addons that has worked around this:

    if ( bit.band(flags, EVALUATION_TREE_FLAG_PROGRESS_BAR) == EVALUATION_TREE_FLAG_PROGRESS_BAR ) then
    

    I have it packaged up, but not sure where I can post it, but if you want to apply the updates manually, have at it....

    Yeah putting the colour at the bottom for the thing at the top of the minion.. not my brightest moment >.<

    I have a fair idea on how to re-implement the tracking and a prototype of the scrolling, but as much as I would love to get them working I just don't have the time :(
    Bring on Uni break already ^_^

    @Sorha2: Go

    That's a shame about the tracking, it's such a pita to do every single time.

    In regards to your 2) I already tried that, it doesn't change the color. I just logged out of the game for the night, I will try again tomorrow morning.

    EDIT:

    My fault, I overlooked it, it was there at the bottom for the minion title text. tyvm.

    As far as 4) goes. If you wanted to take a look at QuestGuru on how he did the "remember what was tracked" and "tracker scrolling" you could always do so. In fact, Mr. O'Brian had to quit the game for personal reasons so he is giving away the addon to any one who wishes to take it over.

    1)
    Have this mostly done, just had a very heavy RL workload lately (Have barely had time to get on wow more then 20mins a week)

    2)
    Try the Settings -> Quest Minion -> Colours -> Minion title text
    Is that the section you meant?
    Yeah I admit the colours I picked for the add-on are fairly random.. joys of being colourblind :D

    3)
    Sadly I don't see myself as being able to get this done in any realistic time frame due to the above time issues :(

    4)
    Originally SQL maintained its own set of quests which were tracked/untracked.
    However people requested it be merged with blizzards ones, which did make the addon alot simpler.
    The trouble is now that for the time being blizzard has a bug with their quest tracking/some other interface settings which loses them each logout :(

    Re-implementing the old system would just be to much work for me at the moment, if blizzard decide not to patch this issue then I may reconsider.

    Sorha, hello.

    I just tried this tracker of yours for the first time yesterday. It took me a little bit to set it up to something I was happy with. I have a few things I would like to mention:

    1.) I too think padding between quests would be nice.

    2.) I really would like to be able to change the color of the text at top of the quest minion where it says 2/3 (4/25) for example. That greenish color you got is not for me.

    and two things I think your tracker is lacking are:

    3.) The ability to scroll the tracker with the mousewheel when many quests expanded extended beyond length of the tracker height

    4.) The ability to have your tracker remember which quests and achievements were tracked. Every time I log in or reload the UI I have to keep opening up the quest log and set quests to track again. (This is the game default behavior)

    I am trying your tracker for the first time as I said. I have been using QuestGuru for over four years and that is a top notch tracker he has. #3 and #4 are two features his tracker offers that I find very helpful.

    Number 4 above is especially useful because it's such a pain to have to open quest log and achieve window and re-set every thing I want tracked. I want the tracker to remember and keep things tracked until I say otherwise. I will decide when I am done tracking something, not Blizzard, not an addon. Also useful for me is because I have bad connection issues lately and I disconnect a lot so I am always having to retrack stuff.

    Thanks.

    This is as good a place as any, though tickets work as well ^_^.

    1)
    Would that be for everything, ie all quest titles, quest objectives etc or mostly just for the minion headers (ie button and x/25 count)?
    I ask because just minion headers = easier :D

    2)
    I can add in an option to increase the padding between each quest/achievement.
    You don't need to adjust the padding between quest title and its objectives do you?
    (Though I could add that as well if it was needed)

    I'm not sure where feature requests are supposed to be made. I have 2:

    1. Changing text alignment would be nice, particularly aligning the text of the Quest Minion to the right instead of the left.
    2. Changing padding/margin settings would also be very nice. As of now, the text seems too close together for me. I'd like the ability to add more distance between each individual quest/achievement.

    It may have been another addon sorry :)

    It's been several months since I used this but I seem to recall it having auto accept and auto turn in of daily quests. I'm not finding these options no. Were they removed or am I mistaken?
