CT_BarMod (5.0002)
- Release version for WoW 5.

Pet battles:
- Added a “Basic Visibility” option to hide a bar when in a pet battle.
- Added a “Basic Visibility” option to hide a bar when there is an override bar.
- When in a pet battle, the main action bar’s key bindings can be used to activate the buttons on the pet battle bar.

Stances:
- When playing as a warrior, bars 7, 8, and 9 are now shown in the options window as ‘general purpose’.
- When playing as a rogue, bar 7 is now shown in the options window as ‘stealth, shadow dance’.
- When playing as a rogue, bar 8 is now shown in the options window as ‘general purpose’.

Bar paging (basic options):
- The Alt, Ctrl, and Shift key options in the Basic Paging options now extend up to action page 14.
- Refer to the next section for a description of action pages 11 through 14.

Bar paging (advanced):
- Blizzard made some changes to action bar pages in WoW 5.
- These changes should not affect you if you are using the basic paging/visibility options for the bars in CT_BarMod.
- These changes may affect you if you are using the advanced paging/visibility options for the bars in CT_BarMod.
- Action page 11 used to be associated with the ‘[bonusbar:5]‘ macro condition and the vehicle, bonus, and possess abilities.
- Action page 11 is now associated with multicast abilities (like the totem bar in WoW 4).
- Action page 12 is new. It is associated with vehicle and possess abilities.
- Action page 13 is new. It is associated with temporary shapeshift abilities.
- Action page 14 is new. It is associated with override abilities.

Bar macro conditions (advanced):
- Blizzard made some changes to action bar related macro conditions in WoW 5.
- These changes should not affect you if you are using the basic paging/visibility options for the bars in CT_BarMod.
- These changes may affect you if you are using the advanced paging/visibility options for the bars in CT_BarMod.
- The macro condition ‘[vehicleui]‘ is still used for detecting vehicle abilities (action page 12).
- Blizzard added the macro condition ‘[possessbar]‘ for detecting possess and vehicle abilities (both use action page 12).
- There is currently no macro condition available for detecting temporary shapeshift abilities (action page 13).
- Blizzard added the macro condition ‘[overridebar]‘ for detecting override abilities (action page 14).
- Blizzard added the macro condition ‘[petbattle]‘ for detecting pet battles (there is no action page number for this).
- The old macro condition ‘[bonusbar:5]‘ no longer works for detecting vehicle, bonus, or possess abilities.
- You can replace ‘[bonusbar:5]‘ with ‘[vehicleui][overridebar][possessbar]‘ if you want to detect the same types of abilities as before. However, keep in mind that the override abilities are on a different action page than the vehicle and possess abilities.
- You can replace ‘[bonusbar:5]‘ with ‘[possessbar]‘ if you only want to detect possess and vehicle abilities (these both use the same action page).
- For now, CT_BarMod will automatically replace the text ‘[bonusbar:5]11′ with ‘[possessbar]12′, and ‘[bonusbar:5]‘ with ‘[possessbar]‘ before using an advanced condition with a bar.

2011-11-29 11:46 am EST

CT_BarMod (4.0301)
- Updated for the WoW 4.3 patch.
- Added overlay glow support for macros that contain an appropriate spell or ability.

CT_BottomBar (4.0301)
- Updated for the WoW 4.3 patch.
- Fixed a bug that was causing the Pet Bar scale, opacity, and button spacing to be ignored when toggling the “Activate” option for the Pet Bar.

- Added support for Blizzard’s new one-button “Extra Bar”.
- a) The game will show and hide the Extra Bar when appropriate (eg. some boss fights).
- b) You can position the Extra Bar when the CT_BottomBar options window is open.
- c) Added an option to hide the textures for the Extra Bar.
- d) Added an option to change the scale of the Extra Bar.
- e) Blizzard has added a key binding for the button on the Extra bar. It is called “Extra Action Button 1″ in the game’s key binding window. It can be found between the “Action button” and “Special action button” key bindings.
- f) If you are having any problems with the Extra Bar you can try disabling the “Activate” option for it in the CT_BottomBar options window (when not in combat). Alternately, you can try using a key binding for the button.

CT_BuffMod (4.0301)
- Updated for the WoW 4.3 patch.
- Added an option which allows you to use unsecure buff buttons.
- Added an option (for unsecure buffs only) that lets you sort non-expiring buffs before, after, or with the other buffs in the same sorting group.

- When using unsecure buff buttons:

a) You can only cancel buffs when not in combat. This is a game restriction.
b) You cannot cancel weapon buffs. This is a game restriction.
c) When sorting by time, CT_BuffMod will also sort by name if the times are the same.
d) Unusecure buff buttons are not affected by the current bugs in Blizzard’s Secure Aura routines (see below).

- You can use unsecure buff buttons to emulate the “Auras” buff group that was available in older versions of CT_BuffMod as follows:

a) Enable the “Use unsecure buff buttons” option for the window.
b) Group the buffs as “All buffs”. Don’t use “Canceleable buffs” or “Uncancelable buffs”.
c) Set the “Buffs that you cast” option to “With other players”.
d) Set the “Non-expiring buffs” option to “After other buffs”.

- Blizzard finally fixed some of the bugs in their Secure Aura routines. As a result the following items are now implemented in CT_BuffMod:

a) The off hand weapon enchant button should now display and cancel properly.
b) The ranged weapon enchant button should now display and cancel properly.
c) You can now sort buffs that you cast, with buffs cast by others. Refer to the “Buffs you can cast” option in the “Sorting” section of the CT_BuffMod options. The default for this option is now “Sort with others”.

- NOTE: There are still some bugs in Blizzard’s Secure Aura routines on the 4.3 PTR as of Nov 27, 2011. It is not known if the bugs will be fixed before 4.3 gets released. Below are some issues you may experience due to these bugs.

1) If you show consolidated or weapon buttons in a CT_BuffMod window…

1a) If a buff fades or is cancelled, the final buff button in the window may not get hidden. The button may continue to show a duplicate buff or a buff that is no longer applicable.

1b) If there was a consolidated or weapon button positioned after the non-hidden button, then you may end up with the two buttons occupying the same spot in the window. You can work around this by showing the consolidated and weapon buttons before the other buff groups.

2) If you show weapon buttons in a CT_BuffMod window…

2a) If you gain a ranged weapon buff, the weapon buff button may not get shown in the window until you gain or lose another buff.

CTMod – 4.0 for Live realms

All of the CTMod addons have been updated for the WoW 4.0 patch. Two of them had some noteworthy changes:

CT_BarMod (4.002)
- Added support for the new flyout bars associated with some new abilities (warlock “Summon Demon”, hunter “Call Pet”, mage “Portal”, mage “Teleport”).
- The key bindings section in the options window has been renamed to “Button options”.
- You can now configure the direction of the flyout bar for each button that is assigned an ability with a flyout bar.
- Added support for the new animated glow that the default UI sometimes shows on a button.

CT_BuffMod (4.002)
- Due to a change made by Blizzard, addons are no longer able to cancel buffs when you right click on a buff’s icon unless the addon uses secure frames for the buffs.
- Since CT_BuffMod currently uses insecure frames, you will not be able to cancel any buffs in the CT_BuffMod window.
- An updated version of CT_BuffMod that uses secure buttons to allow you to cancel buffs is being worked on, but is not ready yet.
- There are options in CT_BuffMod that will let you show Blizzard’s default buff frames so that you can cancel buffs.
- An alternate way to cancel buffs is to use the /cancelaura command with a spell name in a macro.
