While I absolutely love Omen, I do not understand why releases have been so often since 2.4. The short answer of "we're bug fixing" is not really good enough, given that many of the versions were shown to be incompatible with each other, further stymieing the usefulness of the addon. Can we get a clear answer to why we're getting updates 5 times a day? (Weekly update rollups would be great, IMO)Thanks for taking the time to answer questions!

This is because you are NOT updating to releases, you are updating to the absolute latest version of the code from the SVN. The SVN is a server that developers upload all code that they finish in one coding session. These changes can be minor or major, depending on what they were doing, but the copies on files.wowace.com are not *intended* for public consumption. If you want releases, try WOWI or Curse, instead.TL;DR You arent using releases, get used to version incompatibilities.

@Ripdog:If the changes to files used by WoWAceUpdater cause the updater to appear to have a new release, is there a method (using WAU) to determine if there is actually a new release of the addon? Is the only way to determine if a new release is truly available to check the Wiki or Curse?I've recently started using WAU and found it quite convenient. I'd like to be able to stick with WAU and not need to check multiple spots for updates (or check somewhere else to find out if an apparent update is actually a new release).Thanks.
