    Yossa, it is running so great now. You have done a fantastic job and I thank you very much for your efforts. This addon makes life so much easier. I have eight toons that are maxed on all professions and I use Skillet with my crafting professions, I sell a lot on auctions and make everything I sell. I would go nuts if I had to do all this work without it.

    Mudley: I have found what could cause such problems. Fix will be published when I get back home.

    Just updated from 2.06 to 2.08. Nothing worked. No recipes showed at all no matter what I did. Any suggestions? TY 2.06 works well, however.

    I use altoholic and skillet for long time, didn't notice any issue also. :/

    What issues with altoholic?
    I haven't noticed any.

    I had one report that it may freeze wow, but I had some other things to do and didn't test it. I've just installed altoholic to check it. For now it works.

    I have just commited the newest Skillet, which uses Ace3, newest libraries, etc.
    It may still contain some bugs, which i didn't catch. That's why I will leave it in Beta for now.
