    While the update looks good, it doesn't function correctly. a) the enhancing/jc window sometimes requires double presses to open (is a macro on my toolbar) b) when loading ktq queue, the queue in skillet will be empty unless a item in the trade window is selected which refreshes the bottom right box. c) the shopping list isn't working d) the colour of each skill is no longer seen on the text of the skill itself?

    I will revert back to the previous version for now as it is mostly still working.

    First Great Add-on! Best prof UI in game! Just need an update or a work around that will enable functionality! Getting Ace2 errors like the person that posted a ticket here on 7-3-10. Could someone help me out plz! I really miss this add-on more so than any other that doesn't work post 3.3.5! TY for your time and consideration!

    I'm getting lots of issues post-3.3.5. They seem to be fixed locally by updating the embedded ace2 library (and a couple of others). Would you accept a patch to do the same in svn?

    well, you've got r163. try r166 (the latest, tho of course, not entire "up-to-date"). see if that helps.
