    Carbonite, how to 'really' fix this wonderful addon

    First, download/redownload (if you deleted Carbonite) here:

    http://www.wowinterface.com/download...Carbonite.html

    Then, click this link to open a zip file:

    http://rythal.com/carbonite-50501.zip

    Copy the files inside the Carbonite folder in that zip over the top of the existing Carbonite files in your WoW directory.

    It looks like this is the fella that will be taking over Carbonite.

    Keep an eye on this website for future updates.

    This doesnt colour in zones for areas to complete quests in MoP but at least it gives you a decent map to work with (and yes, the zones actually display).

    That is great news if the Carbonite developers do actually release the source and make it GNU code.

    And they aren't going to. It's a big thing if you go look at their forum on wow interface. They don't even play anymore and aren't testing in the game. To update they just took most of this guys work and added it to Carbonite and released it. They don't want anybody trying to do this they've said.

    Chaos, if you go to Rythal's blog in the link there he claims that Faatal sent him an email a couple days ago suggesting that they will release Carbonite to the community. They have also removed all links and pages for donations on the carboniteaddon.com website. This would indicate that there is a good chance that Carbonite might go GPL.

    Damn. Really? Wow that's good news. I lost interest in Carbonite when I saw that post from them about not letting fan updates happen. If they weren't playing the game they should have let fans update. Good to know they may have changed their mind. I may have to go get the new one to try it out.

    Yeah, it appears that Rythal is still doing a fan update but only publishing it thru his blog.

    This would be the reason I posted the instructions in the OP. I dont really need Carbonite for the questing data (albeit, the quest data is nice to have for the multitude of times Zygor has incorrect coordinates or when everything I need for a specific quest has already been killed by someone else and Zygor only lists on location for completing a quest). Carbonite more than anything is a nice map and I like their quest tracker (its nice and small / compact). I could personally do without the reskinned quest log and the plethora of other 'junk' that Carbonite does.

    I hope Carbonite does go GPL. It would be awesome if Zygor adopted some of the features that it had. Such as the find nearest trainer, etc...

    And, there it is, Carbonite is now open source using the GPL license.

    Source code is here: http://www.carboniteaddon.com/download.shtml
