There seem to be some server problems with Curse.com.
This will affect Curse.com and it also seems Curse Client downloads.
CurseForge/WowAce do not seem to be affected, so as a developer you can continue to update addons.
For end users, if you wish to download addons you can access them from the project page (http://www.wowace.com/addons/arl/ for example). Click on the files tab and you can download from there.
The people who make things work are aware of the problem, and are working on it.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
Update: The network issue has been resolved, and all services should be working properly again. We apologize for the inconvenience.
A network outage at a core router in New York City is currently preventing many Curse network sites and services from functioning properly, for people in certain parts of the world. We have contacted our data center, and they are looking into the issue now.

I am very proud to announce the official launch of Curse Client v4 Early Access Beta!
The New Client is Born
After the launch of Curse Client 3.0, we began taking notes on the most frequent user requests, complaints, and general feedback. The result of this feedback is version 4. In development since May, version 4 of the Curse Client has been redesigned from the ground up. Written in C# and utilizing Microsoft WPF technology, the Curse Client now sports a modern user interface and an entirely new set of features.
Below are instructions for how you can get into the early access beta, as well as screenshots showcasing the new client.
A native, Cocoa-based Mac client has also been in development, and will soon be entering beta.
Installing the Beta
Simply download the installer from http:clientupdate.curse.com/setup.exe and run it. The installer will verify a compatible version of .Net is on your computer, and update it if necessary. Depending on what version of .Net is installed on your computer, this process can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes.
How to Report Bugs & Feedback
Please report all bugs using the integrated bug reporting tool. This will automatically include a snapshot of the Curse Client log data, as well as your operating system information. We're excited to hear what you think about the new Curse Client.

The development team here at Curse has been hard at work on the Curse Client 4.0.
Crunch Gear was given a sneak peak at the newest alpha client, 4.0. It's been entirely rewritten to optimize performance, speed, and usability. Of course it's going to pack in some new features as well. It's only in Alpha so we can only share this screen shot of the updated UI.
I (Kaelten) also wanted to take the opportunity to post a screenshot of our upcoming mac client. Our mac users are important to us, and as a result most of my time has been monopolized by working on the new v4 Mac client. It's a completely native Cocoa app targeting 10.4 and will run on both intel and PPC macs. It's not as far along feature wise as the windows client, but again, I did want to make sure people know that it is actively being worked on.
For clarification the Windows one is the dark one, where the mac client is the silver one.
Mac Update 7/24
I just updated with an extra screenshot from today's alpha release. So please check it out. I hope you guys agree it's starting to come together. :)

Hey beautiful people, ckknight here.
We at Curse.com are holding three contests for addon authors within the Curse Network (i.e. WowAce and CurseForge). The grand prize for each contest is a BlizzCon ticket. You'll be able to compete in all three contests, but you can only win one BlizzCon ticket total. We're also going to be providing Author Reward Points for runners-up.
Note: for the BlizzCon tickets, we won't be providing travel costs. You'll have to get to California on your own. Also, you need to be at least 18 years old.
The contests will run from now until June 15th, you can submit any time from here until then, and you can also revise your entries up until that point.
You can find the contests at http://beta.wowace.com/contests/. Yes, this is the beta site for WowAce, but it still should work fine, the contests system was easier to make with the new system than having to backport it. CurseForge authors shouldn't have a problem logging in or submitting entries.
We're hoping that by having these coding challenges, it'll be a bit more fun and interesting than giving out tickets to the top 3 authors or holding a simple raffle.
