RDX6 -- Alpha 8 Interim Releases and Alpha 9

A lot has gone on since the last time I wrote about RDX6. There have been four interim releases all containing a significant amount of content and then a final Alpha release.

The first interim release contained a first batch of bossmods for RDX6. These bossmods covered most of Naxxramas, omitting only one boss in the Death Knight wing and having only partially completed Four Horsemen module. I have only gotten to use one of them, specifically the one for Noth the Plaugebringer and to be perfectly honest when I did, the Big Wigs version was better. The RDX bossmod did not seem to wait until the Curse of the Plaguebringer was cast until beginning to count to the next one, which is important because it is a cooldown ability not on a straight timer. However, I am certain the bossmods will be improved over time.

The second interim release was for a raid status module. This provided a framework for the creation of statistics which constituted interesting raid status information for the individual. The statistics work off of Sets created by Filter objects so its mostly using things which people are already familiar with.

In the third interim release there were some improvements made to the debuff auto-curing. The improvements include things like a blacklist and the ability to prioritize by creating a Set which contains those who are a priority.

The fourth interim release included a 'styles' module which allows the user to change the way the the default frames look. I haven't had a chance to experiment with this yet so I can't say much.

Alpha 9 appears to be an inclusion of all the interim releases plus some polish.
