Default 3.2 Changes

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patch...atchnotes.html

User Interface
  • Character name auto-completion for the chat frame, pop-ups, and mail interface can be enabled through an interface option in the Development settings.
  • Character names can now be colorized according to class in the chat frame through an interface option in the Development settings.
  • Casting bars under a target's portrait will now indicate whether or not the cast can be interrupted.
  • Druids will now be able to see their mana bars when shape-shifted.
  • Item Comparisons: Holding the shift key while hovering over an item will now display the stat differences with the item currently equipped in the relevant slot.
  • Macros and scripts will no longer be able to target totems by name.
  • Quest creatures and objects will now show on the player's world map.
  • The quest log is now double-paned for more easily viewing quest information.
  • Vendor prices will now be listed on items whether or not players are at a vendor.
  • For additional notes on Lua and XML changes please visit the UI & Macros forum.
Also
--A customizable totem bar will now be available for shaman allowing the storing of 4 different totems. These totems can be placed on the ground at once in one global cooldown for the combined mana cost of all 4 totems.

I'm actually curious to see how this one works, it could be wonderful or it could be shit... only the PTR will tell.

BTW is the PTR up yet?

I use wowhead for a LOT more than mob info. In fact.... I don't remember the last time I looked up a mob location on wowhead. But I'm on the site almost daily.

No surprise tbh. Once again, they took the best/most wanted features of already existing addons and incorporated them into the default UI.

historically, they have done a pretty lousy job at every attempt, so Im going to wait and see and assume I'll still be running Carbonite long after 3.2 is released.

Some of us would beg to differ. I always tend toward default UI implementations whenever possible. The only example of failure I can think of recently was the calendar doing only invites, not sign-ups, but that got fixed in the last patch.

I would argue that the default implementation of the Equipment Manager is pretty bad.
