For the last two years we've been working on a new platform to power CurseForge. In March 2014 we debuted the platform to support WildStar. In May 2014 we added Kerbal Space Program and then shortly after migrated Minecraft to the new platform.
Since then, we've been frantically working to add new features to support the new experiences, as well as the features that were still missing from the legacy platform. The time has now come to show the hard won fruits of the last two years of labor to our World of Warcraft authors.
To that end we're launching beta sites for both WowAce and WoW CurseForge. While we're very happy with the platform, we need your help with trying to break things, finding things we've missed, or giving feedback on some of the changes we've made.
There are two important things to know: While these sites are more or less feature complete when compared to the existing sites the one major feature that's still to be launched is repositories. This feature is forthcoming and will be enabled in the upcoming weeks. Secondly, these sites are not truly live. Any projects created, changed, updated, or the like will not synchronize to either Curse.com or the Client.
We're expecting to leave the beta sites up for several weeks. During the testing period, please use this forum for discussions, bug reports, and general feedback. At the end of the beta test we'll be wiping out everything on the new platform and reimporting the legacy sites.
We hope you enjoy the new sites, and we can't wait to hear your feedback!

We're performing maintenance on some of the back-end services, which necessitated the disabling of the service that updates the download counters on all projects. The downloads are still being recorded, however, so once we re-start that particular service the numbers will reflect the correct amount.
UPDATE: The services have been re-enabled; download counters are now reading appropriately.

Half of the CurseForge team is headed to Pax South Jan 22-26th. During this time approvals may take slightly longer than normal, especially during the 10pm to 10am shift (CST). We will still be checking the queues and approving files, but we will be away from our computers with only hotel internet to rely on, so delays may occur. If you are going to be at Pax South, come find us and say hi. Or RSVP for the CurseForge Dinner.
