Well, it's that time of the year again. The holidays are upon us.
A lot of people will be taking time off so please have a bit of patience when submitting new files/projects for approval. We'll get to them as soon as possible.
We'll see you next year!

Patch 3.3 has hit US servers this morning. You can get more information about the patch at Curse.com.
Now, what does this mean to us addon authors? It's time to update addons again!
When you're doing updates for 3.3 make sure you update your addons TOC file. The interface version this patch 30300 which will make your ToC have an entry such as:
## Interface: 30300
If you're planning on updating another authors mod, please read the policy on abandoned and inactive projects. Following the rules outlined there will make the entire process smoother for both you and us (the moderators/admin staff).
Have a great patch day everyone.

Recently we became aware of a needed change in how we've been handling payments to international authors.
While we'll still not need to withhold anything, we do need to start collecting a W-8BEN for any Non-US Citizen who wishes to redeem more than $600 worth of points a year. More information can be found [[kb:store/tax-information/|here]] and [[kb:store/international-taxes|here]].
Nothing has changed for US Citizens. We still need a valid W-9 on file if a US Citizen wishes to redeem more than $600 worth of points a year. More information regarding this form can be found [[kb:store/domestic-taxes|here]].
I hope that these knowledge base pages will help people understand more about why we need these forms and how to get them to us. If there are any concerns or questions we'll do our best to address them.

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.
