I'm sure you may have noticed a change in our forums. Going forward, we've decided to get a clean start with the forums and get rid of our backlog of half-relevant information. With that in mind, we've launched our new site, wikis and forums to support Windower 4.
It's been a few months since we launched Windower 4, and we're pleased with the great response from all of you so far. The vast majority of our users are using Windower 4 as their daily use, so to that end we have some changes we'd like to announce.
First, version 3.4 is now officially unsupported. Fixes both to hook and plugins will no longer be backported to version 3.4. We're also dropping the "Beta" label from Windower 4. The stability and reach of Windower 4 has, over the months, improved to the point where it's no longer really an applicable label. So from here on out, we are going to do our best to keep Windower 4 as stable as possible, and only push out changes after extensive testing.
To help this testing get started, we're also introducing a Windower 4 unstable release. This is basically our current development snapshot. Things may, and probably will, be broken with no notice and may not be fixed immediately. That said, it also contains the most recent things we're working on, such as UI integration with the mouse, a spellcast replacement addon, and the new FFXIDB plugin.
You may have already noticed the changes to our site, but there's a few points I want to touch on briefly.
First, and most important, we have introduced a shared Windower Account between all of our various subsites and applications. This can be accessed via http://account.windower.net/ and is used to log in to everything on windower.net
We've also set up wikis at http://wiki.windower.net and http://dev.windower.net. These are doku wikis, no more confluence to deal with. These will contain info for developers (dev.windower.net), and documentation for users (wiki.windower.net), and use your Windower Account to log in.
The newest addition is our Library application. This is a site designed to allow you to easily share, rate and comment on spellcast or gearswap files, or even guides or Lua scripts. This site is still a work in progress, and the design may likely change slightly over the next few days. It can be found at http://library.windower.net and, again, uses your Windower Account to log in.
While Windower version 3.4 will no longer be supported, we have the forums up (and locked) at http://legacy.windower.net, which can be used to access any old topics you may need. This is the only part of windower NOT using the Windower Account for authentication, but you can log in with your old windower forums account if needed.
Welcome to the new Windower Forums
