Each time you hit your "copy" command with a block of code, think about a way to refactor it so it did what you want without using the "paste" command.

You're right. That's what I get for doing this stuff after working then driving for three hours.

Since there have been no bug reports or feature requests, I've pushed the latest version as a Release.

Edit the first post maybe? BTW, I saw the auctioneer announcement for LibExtraTip now, wonder why they did not just use LibEnhToolTip.

*shrug* ah well

Because "enhanced" is too generic if all their lib does is provide "extra" tooltips?
(note: I don't know what their lib does, going off the old enhtooltip stuff)

Because the new Lib is a completely different animal. ETT was written ages ago, and is essentially outdated. From what I've gathered, the new TT has new functionality, is slimmer, faster, and more capable than ETT could hope to be. ETT is ancient, the new TT lib is... new, sparkly, and up to date with the latest fast-paced, in-your-face addon trends.

Unlike old cars, you don't take an old addon, rip out the insides, replace the entire thing and keep the exact same name.... typically.

Bah, getting too off topic I guess... but ...


I would, especially in the case of a library like routine in an enviorment with a global namespace. Does not seem to me the guts are what should be named, so much as the functionality.

Yes but in this case the API changed drastically.
