Looking for a Rogue's distance addon

UI and Macro
As seen in:

Cataclysm Recap Video: Legendary Rogue
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=8LZrTxFnQPQ#!

The rogue has a red circle around him showing the distance he needs to keep while stealth. I would like to add this to my druid and rogue. I have spent hours looking on curse, google, and these forums. Most iv found were people asking same question with no reply.

Thank you in advance <3
it only apears when you are doing the quests for the rogue legendary daggers it is not an addon
oh lol GM said they thought it was :) but is there anything like it outside the quest?

and ty for the reply :)
No. Addons aren't allowed to draw in 3D really.

there might be in MoP, they haven't documented all the API changes but from the bits I've seen rogues might get something like that built in.

If rogues get an AVR-style thingy to mark their stealth range in the 3d world, I demand a similar dongle for Blink/Rocket Jump/Disengage destination.

EDIT: Of course, if this only exists during the legendary quest and is not a new general UI element that they get (of which I've seen no indication in beta yet; mind, but I haven't played my rogue at all really; he's my bank alt); then nevermind.

EDIT EDIT: After hopping on my beta rogue, I got no indicator of my stealth range on my target (remember; it is dependent on level difference), nor any indication (other than pulling aggro) when I entered that range, just like now. I did not notice if the icon still shows up over the heads of "detector" units; I didn't find any.

Thus, it is most likely that this was just a feature of that questline and not a preview of a new UI feature.
I'm looking for a red circle as well, as shown in the legendary quest. So far I've found an addon called http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/powerauras-classic which I will give it a shot and let you know!

I'd like the addon to support red circle around my character to show my melee range, stealth detection range (approx range that an average player or mob at my level will see me) and a circle around mobs to show their aggro range (approx).

EDIT: If you mess around with the settings, PowerAura can be a pretty cool temporary addon until you find a better one.
As previously said, this cannot be done. Addons cannot draw in 3D. PowerAuras can draw a circle around your own toon in 2D on the screen (not projected in 3d to mark the range), based on a condition of if you're in/out of range of whatever you're currently targetting. It's just a yes/no confirmation like that one on the default buttons (little dots) to show you if you're within range or not.

No such addon can be made. You can submit it as a suggestion to the blizz developers using the new ticket/suggestion system and that's about it.
Highly unlikely that Blizz will allow manipulation of the 3D world, there was already that drawing addon to help with raid position and movement and they broke that.
