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.

    Bosses are units so I would consider this feature a no brainer for a unit frame addon. :)

    Any Update on this Feature in the near Future ??

    No that was not added in that commit. I just made the unit ids considered valid by our event processing since the PTR generates events for boss1-4 now. The change just prevents errors on the PTR. We have similar code for the arena unit ids but also don't support frames for them yet.

    supposedly added in v4.0.0-beta9-28-ga3f6945, but I don't see anything in the addon that actually indicates this.

    It's coming. I'm finishing up a major set of changes and my next major batch will be implementing adhoc groups.

    Would really like it if Pitbull would cover these frames. Shadowed Unit Frames is treating them as a group, similar to the party frames, and I think I prefer that method over treating boss1-boss4 as separate entities.

    Hoping to see this feature in Pitbull soon... I miss it!

    Yeah I could have done that pretty easily. I want to add them as groups. Which requires the addition of adhoc groups.

    After a couple of fights in ICC where I really wanted this feature, I put together the simplest version of this, where boss1 - boss4 are "singleton" units. I could try to submit a patch if you want to go with this approach. (the changes were very small.)
