TrackerAssist v1.12 posted

I developed an AddOn for World of Warcraft (WoW) called TrackerAssist back in Jan '05. Since then I periodically updated it, then didn't update it for quite some time and have recently made a few updates incorporating some code contributions from other authors to bring it up to the latest WoW environment and fix some bugs.

Anyway, the latest version is available at the below links.

TrackerAssist provides some enhancements to the tracking ability available to some of the classes in the game. If you have a tracking ability (like hunters have for example), then when tracking is enabled and you mouse over a blip on the radar, TrackerAssist will show additional info about the unit as shown below.

If you then click on the blip, TrackerAssist will send a notification to the chat channel as shown below.

Use /ta to see the available command line options and current settings as shown below.

WoW AddOns make use of Lua to customize the game interface and client behavior and allow quite a bit of community involvement/improvement in the game. In developing the AddOn with Lua, I could see using this at some point from the application developer's role to allow scripting of my app.
