    Just to let you know that 3.03 seems to have taken care of the multiple queued items issue. This feature seems to be working now, as do most other features. I have a couple of issues for which I will go ahead and open tickets for.

    @stubbyswiss: Go

    Please try 3.03 for your experiments and a list of what works would be great. The list of what doesn't work should have a ticket opened (a separate one for each issue).

    The create multiple queued items known issue isn't fixed yet because I can't get it to fail on my system. If you open a ticket for that issue, please be as specific as you can. A screenshot might be helpful but more than that, a copy of the debug log. A debug log can be created by typing "/skillet debuglogging". Close Skillet and logoff after an issue has been discovered. The data I need is the account wide savedvariables file Skillet.lua and the per character savedvariables file Skillet.lua (please rename this one to Skillet_<toon>.lua

    Be aware that in some cases, just enabling debug logging has caused the problem to disappear.

    Greetings, and thanks once again for all the work and effort you are putting into getting this addon back up to speed.

    Since the launch of 7.0.3 I have downloaded and tested just about all of your updates, and as of this time I can say that the most stable one for me is 3.02-beta4. It does still have a few bugs, but mostly it does what I need it to do, especially creating multiple queued items without me having to click on the process button repeatedly.

    If you would like, I could try and put together an itemized list of what works and doesn't work with this version, compared to lets say the latest version, for you to have a look at. If you think this would be helpful, please let me know where and how I should post this.

    Again, many thanks for all the work.

    I am using it in Legion Beta (Skillet ver.3.02-beta2) on a blacksmith ... says spell not learned ... flushed all data ... still not working for Beta Legion ... only error message I get is "spell not learned" Hope that helps you

    I will revert to an earlier alpha and let you know how it goes

    Edit: Went back and loaded r513, dumped the lua in WTF for Skillet, loaded the Legion Beta, did the "skillet flushalldata" and then opened blacksmithing.

    Got a warning that I was using an Alpha Version ... cliked ok and made some items... seems to work with the new legion recipes in Legion Beta. I crafted 3 items and mailed them off to an alt.

    The next time I opened the window it looked different ... like skillet ... but unfortunately I don't have mats to test it further at this time... I use Skillet for many years already, but did not load any addons when I started copying my toons to the Legion Beta. So, the installation of Skillet on the Legion Beta toons was a "virgin" installation.

    Anyway I will test again later when I have more mats and let you know how it goes. THanks for keeping this addon alive m8.

    Just wanted to say thanks for what is obviously a lot of time and effort going into updating this add on. Don't think we are not noticing just how fast those updates are coming out. We do appreciate it!

    @bsmorgan: Go

    Just wanted to give you and update on my original post in that I found the issue that was causing my concern, for some reason in my Addons folder for Skillet I found two old update text files ( r488 and r493 ) still there with the latest update file under them so when it appears that when CURSE scanned this folder it was seeing this r488 old file 1st and not seeing the other or newest file and was how it was reporting needing to update to latest file. Thanks for this Add on I like it a lot.

    Ah ok now I understand, thanks for the info, forgot about the options. I was concerned cause I like this add on over the others I have tried......

    @Bludwulf62: Go Skillet on Curse will get updated when I decide that the current Alpha release is ready. Curse only updates when Beta or Release versions are created, it does not update on Alpha releases.

    I'm guessing you are using the Curse Client and if it thinks you are interested in Skillet, it will keep you updated with "the latest release" which is 2.88. While I don't use the Curse Client personally, I've been told you can tell it which quality (Alpha, Beta, Release) you are interested in on a per addon basis as well as globally. I don't know if you can tell the Curse Client to ignore an addon completely.

    If you want to continue to run Alpha builds, then I suggest you check back here often (or use the Subscriptions tab to set notifications). Alpha builds won't always work. You can enter tickets here if you want.

    Was wondering when CURSE is going to be updated so that after using WoWAce files to update Skillet to the latest version after r488 that CURSE does not come back the next day reporting that my version is still r488 and to update to the newest version. I manually update this add on from here because CURSE fails at updating from there on any latest version since r488. CURSE is also showing that the latest version is for WoW is 6.2.3 with Newest File: 2.88 with this latest version Updated Dec 25, 2015. I have gone thru all Saved Variable folders for WoW and deleted all Skillet.lua's and still keep getting that my latest version Curse is showing still remains at r488.
