IMPORTANT: Addon Notice

Mac Technical Support
The following list of mods will FREEZE wow on login

http://www.wowace.com/addons/libtourist-3-0/reverse-relationships/

Unless you use versions released TODAY. If it wasn't released TODAY or shown updated as today, disable it, it will hang wow on login. The offending addon is actually libtourist, it has since been fixed, but any addon embedding it needs to be updated to pull the latest lib to correct the freezes. Furthermore weakaura's also used some bad GetTime calls that also caused same bug in wow hanging, it has an alpha release that fixes that issue as well but you need to install beta versoin of addon to get it until they tag an actual release. However using a beta release has potential to have other bugs, but at least that addon won't crash wow anymore.

UPDATE MODS
Silver dragon
Weak Auras
travelagent
Broker_Location
FishingAce
FishingBuddy
Tomquest2

These updated mods no longer cause crash (when you update them that is). Everything else in list on that link is not compatible with 4.3

Thank you, Omegal! A wonderful call out.

This also includes the following add ons: Fishing Buddy, Fubar Guild Fu and Fubar Friends Fu.
It applies to pretty much any addon or UI mod. :)

Just starting a list of which add ons are affected. The GuildFu one is really driving me nuts, can't see which nut cases are online quickly!

those are on the list if you use the curse link, i added silverdragon and weakaura's as extention to that curse link because they aren't on the curse link. there could also be other mods that cause same freezing behavior. point is though that if you're freezing on login you need to start with your mods.

Hmmm.... Is Recount working okay Omegal ?

That was a big one on the PTR for crashing people right out.

I know it's since been updated but they did say they possibly might not of caught all divide by zero cases in which it would crash.

recount is fine. the CLEU wasn't changed this patch, and as far as i can tell div by 0 check was also disabled on live like iriel said it would be, which means about the ONLy addons not working are ones that used GetTime() in onupdate functions poorly

FishingBuddy is confirmed. Just spent a couple hours enabling and disabling addons, and FishingBuddy forced a hard reboot every time. Even Carbonite is working!
Hmmm for the ones that aren't working you may want to seek out the addon author's ticketing system and submit a bug report to them.

I haven't figured out which addons are nasty, but disabling all out of date addons makes the game load.

I will step through addons and figure out what works for now.
I updated the LibTourist as well as LibBabble-Zone-3.0 items and it let me in with everything turned on that uses those.

LibTourist:

LibBabble

yeah, if you install stand alones of them it fixes the addons that use them as well. most of them have been updated by now that are sitll maintained, i think fishing buddy is only main one that hasnt. as for the others, they are probalby dead projects
