To Sean: You forgot WowAce.com's Files - http://files.wowace.com/Yes, technically WoWAce.com is a developer site, and most of the authors of addons hosted there say that to avoid full responsibility for bugs; but the fact remains that there are hundreds of addons hosted on the site that aren't hosted elsewhere, and a large number of people check it regularly (most people I know actually just use WAU; but you know what I mean).To everyone! :) Interested in keeping up to date with updates to all your favourite addons? Tired of having to check multiple sites on a regular basis? Yeah, I was too, and a while back I finally got off my arse and made something where I don't have to check each site anymore: - http://fin.instinct.org/wowmods/It shows updates to addons hosted on wowace, curse, wowui, and wowi, with an RSS feed, some filtering options, and details for each mod (with changelog history). Here's hoping others find it useful too!cheers, - Fin

Another vote for wowace.but to the original author, you say:"For you Ace advocates, I should mention the Ace addon system, which many players choose because Ace addons play well with each other and used shared libraries to minimize memory use."You've got it all wrong - people don't love WowAce because of the libraries, or the memory usage. People love it because the updater ROCKS. I'm an addon-junkie, and tried tons of addons.The biggest headache is not installing them, but keeping them up to date. The WowAceUpdater is MILES ahead of anything else out there.In fact, I'd rather have a less-functionality addon from WowAce than a more-functionality addon from somewhere else. The ease of managing, installing, updating, and removing addons with the WoWAce addon is just so much easier than doing it manually, or with the other tools.I have 55 addons that I use through WoWAce.How do I keep them up to date?-Launch the updater-Hit F10So, it's got to be a really compelling addon for me to go outside the WowAce family these days.e.g. Auctioneer and Bongos.
