Blizzard User Interface

UI and Macro
There are some aspects of the game that can only be completed successfully with addons, such as keep track of major enemy cooldowns or pvp trinkets in arena. The thing is lately a great quantity of addons are being blocked because they're trying to access things that they shouldn't, and blizzard ui is blocking actions like changing talents. In the other hand, blizzard ui is poorly developed and has been pretty static for quite a while, as a user I feel like the develop of the blizzard ui has been left aside because there are so many people developing addons and it's just not normal having to install an addon to track cds, an addon to read mail and stuff like that, I mean, you can do all this without addons by running scripts in game that take a lot of customization and time, and game experience is not that cool anymore.

Loss of Control option was a poorly implemented change, unexpected and hotfixed because it couldn't even be completly disabled, I mean really?

My question here is, can we see some major change in blizzard user interface in the future?
At least give us the option to not to rely in some guys addon thats gonna be updated you know when.

actually the blizzard UI isn't blocking that, however it does cause that as it's leaking globals and interferes with addons
Is there any work-around to get the add-on's working again?

That was fixed back in 5.0.5. The talent UI doesn't have any leaked globals anymore. It's likely another addon that's tainting the talent frames in some way, not something that's Blizzards fault.

Well, it was impacting their own stuff too. :) But the UI team at Blizzard likes to fix bugs whenever they get a chance.
