PitBull Unit Frames 4.0

623 - Frames for boss1..boss4 unit ids in patch 3.3.0

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?
Patch 3.3.0 will add new unit id tokens for bosses: boss1, boss2, boss3, and boss4. New unit frames will be added for these units in the default UI. I'd like it if PitBull 4 would provide frames for these units, also.

Please provide any additional information below.
These changes are not fully implemented yet in build 10571 of the PTR. Once they are finished and relatively stable, it would be worth investigating for PitBull.

    Just wanted to pop in and show my support for this feature. PitBull 4 is hands down the best unit frame mod out there, this feature would make it complete in my opinion.

    Regards, -Boda

    With very minimal programming knowledge I can make small edits to typos in lua files, but nothing major. If there was a book on lua coding, I would read it, because I would really like the ability to get rid of the ugly blizzard boss frames. They're the only thing in my UI that looks like the default UI.

    I'm sure you're quite busy with life and other addon projects, and writing a simple program for my grad project I can understand how much work is involved in making this change happen. If I could throw money at you I would, but unfortunately I can't.

    This is an awesome feature request and I'm sure most of us would really like an update on it's progress.

    Just want to say i am still looking forward to this feature.

    This is definitely a core feature that is very close to a -must have- now. With boss fights like Nefarian healers have to be able to see the boss HP as well for crackles. Several examples can be listed as why this is a very important feature.

    I realize maintaining an addon as massive and popular as Pitbull is tough, but i really hope this feature is still being considered and some time will be set aside to bring Pitbull up to date with every other unit frame addon out there now.

    Currently i am running Pitbull with Shadowed Unit Frames and just disabling everything but boss mods with Shadowed. Seems like such an overkill :(

    This a great mod!

    I know pitbull isn't for profit and I've always appreciated the work of the people who maintain it but this feature, or rather the lack of this feature after such an insanely long time is enough to make me leave pitbull for something else. It's negatively impacting my ability to raid correctly with these unit frames and I'm inches away from permanently switching over to something else. When i gets fixed I'll probably come back but I doubt it will be before.

    I've been pretty faithful to pitbull ever since I started using unitframe add-ons, and have recommended its use to friends... who are steadily leaving Pitbull behind for less awkward add-ons. Now I think I'll be following them. After seeing that this ticket has been in place for almost exactly 14 months and no real or obvious plans to implement a change many other frame add-ons do have in place, it's rather disheartening. Happily I didn't play much in Wrath so the consistently bugged Blizzard ones didn't have the chance to bother me until recently. =/ I'll keep an eye out hoping for this change, but until then, byebye to Pitbull. I doubt the authors care too much, but I thought I'd share my feelings on the matter. Good luck either way.

    @oalex, Send me bags of cash and give me a full time staff to work on the addon and things will happen in the time frame that you want them to. Even then sometimes things won't happen as fast as you'd like.

    Come on, this has the single most votes for requested features for Pitbull. Its also over 1 year old.

    Dont say "dont bump".

    You wrote this in May: "It's coming."

    Guys, don't bump tickets. It's annoying. It doesn't add anything of value. Your requests aren't forgotten.
