Removed dependency on the now-defunct Chronos library.

17 November 2008 17:08

Turned off uploading of some data that we're not using for now. This should make your uploads faster.

27 October 2008 12:17

Released version 0.41 of the AddOn, for compatibility with WoW 3.0. If you'd like to get the latest Chronos and Sea from us, please reinstall the TenTonHammer.com AddOn from the website "on top of" your existing installation. You won't lose any data or settings.

28 March 2008 18:20

Released version 0.40 of the AddOn, for compatibility with WoW 2.4.

7 January 2008 11:22

Released a completely new Web interface to the existing data. The AddOn and Uploader are unchanged. See the FAQs for more information.

15 November 2007 12:24

Released version 0.39 of the AddOn, for compatibility with WoW 2.3. If you'd like to get the latest Chronos and Sea from us, please reinstall the TenTonHammer.com AddOn from the website "on top of" your existing installation. You won't lose any data or settings.

6 November 2007 00:55

Deleted about half the NPCs in the database, to zap all the pets that had crept in.

26 September 2007 2:56

Released version 0.38 of the AddOn. This updates the version number for WoW patch 2.2. The install now includes WoW 2.2 versions of Sea and Chronos. To avoid introducing incompatibilities with your other AddOns, we don't autoupdate Sea and Chronos. You can reinstall from the Web site if you'd like the latest versions of them.

13 September 2007 4:03

Released version 0.37 of the AddOn. This fixes a problem where pets could end up being stored as an NPCs, if certain other AddOns were running. The install now also includes the latest version of Sea. To avoid introducing incompatibilities with other AddOns you may be running, we don't autoupdate your copy of Sea. And older copies of Sea still work fine with TenTonHammer.com. You can reinstall from the Web site if you'd like the latest copy of Sea.

28 August 2007 2:32

Released version 0.32 of the Uploader. This switches uploads to use the www.TenTonHammer.com login instead of the WoW.TenTonHammer.com login. See the FAQ for more info.

24 August 2007 19:19

Deleted a bunch of duplicate quests. Likely threw out the baby with the bathwater in a few cases, but as people re-upload, the good quests should appear again, with comments automatically reattached.

08 August 2007 13:44

Released version 0.36 of the AddOn. This fixed a minor census glitch that could have caused data specific to Burning Crusade to be underrepresented if gathered at times of very high server traffic.

23 May 2007 13:44

Released version 0.35 of the AddOn, for compatibility with WoW version 2.1.

19 March 2007 13:58

Released version 0.34 of the AddOn. This fixes a few minor bugs that resulted from interactions with other AddOns. (Web interface to merchant information is still coming, but the Web guys have been busy with other things.)

11 January 2007 14:57

Released version 0.33 of the AddOn and version 0.31 of the Uploader. This is compatible with WoW patch 2.0.3 and gathers additional merchant information (Web interface to merchant information coming soon)

14 December 14:13

Released version 0.32 of the AddOn, which more reliably gathers item tooltip data, and version 0.29 of the Uploader, which better handles nickname/password errors.

8 December 20:02

Released version 0.31 of the AddOn, which fixes a bug that was causing junk quests to to show up with the log file header as the quest name.

6 December 14:43

Released version 0.30 of the AddOn, with fixes for some last-second changes by Blizzard. Also included compatible Sea and Chronos versions with the install. You'll need to reinstall to get these libraries - autoupdate won't modify them. (That's to avoid breaking any other AddOns you may be running which depend on certain versions of Sea or Chronos.) You won't lose any data or settings if you reinstall TenTonHammer.com "on top of" your existing version.

5 December 13:44

The install now includes the latest Chronos and Sea libraries (Sea is now a dependency of Chronos). You can install directly over your existing version of TenTonHammer.com to update the libraries for WoW patch 2.0. You won't lose any data or settings.

5 December 1:29

Released version 0.29 of the AddOn, for the WoW 2.0 patch.

30 November 13:20

Released version 0.28 of the Uploader. This fixes a minor memory leak, corrects a few Contact Us problems, and sorts the upload lists (necessary to get around a Burning Crusade issue). And yes, I know I released version 0.27 of the Uploader twice. I can program, I just can't count. ;-)

28 November 13:34

Released version 0.28 of the AddOn, which fixed a Mac-only Burning Crusade bug.

22 November 01:43

Released version 0.27 of the AddOn, which fixed a bug that was causing errors with other AddOns. (Version 0.26 was internal-only.)

17 November 23:08

Released version 0.25 of the AddOn, and version 0.27 of the uploader. This fixes some Burning Crusade bugs, improves automatic retries of upload errors, and improves formatting for item tip fields on the Web pages. (As a result of this change, I had to clear all the tip fields. They'll fill back in as people upload.)

4 November 13:02

Released version 0.24 of the AddOn. This streamlines some data collection, for faster uploads.

3 November 12:49

Census is now "Burning Crusade ready", with support for the new races and the increased level cap (check out the Hellfire beta server!).

1 November 13:01

Released the Items database, including loot drop statistics on NPCs.

25 October 15:19

Released version 0.23 of the AddOn. This improves the in-game GUI and lays groundwork for Burning Crusade support. (Type "/tenton gui" in-game to open the GUI.)

17 October 15:11

Released version 0.22 of the AddOn and version 0.27 of the uploader. This fixes some causes of upload errors, and improves data collection for loot drops (Web interface to items and loot drops coming soon!)

11 October 15:15

Fixed a bug that caused login errors to be reported as "Data Errors".

10 October 13:24

Released version 0.21 of the AddOn. This adds an in-game GUI. Type "/tenton gui" to open the GUI window.

16 September 04:27

Released version 0.24 of the Uploader. This adds better handling of certain data format and Internet errors.

8 September 23:54

Released version 0.20 of the AddOn. This fixes some cross-server battleground issues related to census.

6 September 18:39

Released version 0.19 of the AddOn. This fixes some US/EU server issues for the census feature. (Where did 0.18 go, you ask? It was released to internal testers only.)

29 August 21:29

Released version 0.17 of the AddOn. This fixes a bug where server lag could cause the Who List window to repeatedly pop up, if census data collection is on. It is still possible (but much less likely) for the window to pop up once if server lag is very bad. But you should be able to close it and not have it reappear.

29 August 17:45

Released version 0.23 of the uploader. This adds automatic retries of individual data elements, to help prevent transient Internet glitches from disrupting an upload.

23 August 23:38

Released version 0.16 of the AddOn. Changes are:

  • Support for WoW patch 1.12
  • Loot drop data collection
  • Census data collection

You can turn census data collection on and off by typing "/tenton +census" or "/tenton -census" within WoW. If on (the default), census collection will occur at login. If you wish to capture a census at any certain time while playing, type "/tenton +census". This will take a census snapshot, even if census data collection is already turned on.

19 August 16:23

Released version 0.22 of the uploader. This adds loot drop support (more on this soon) and encoding of "upper-ASCII' characters.
