Chinchilla Minimap Updated to Version 2.6

After being left in “alpha” status on Curse since Patch 5.2 came out, Chinchilla Minimap has finally been given a new public release version.

While I haven’t yet been able to finish working on everything that I’d like to, this release includes several important fixes to bugs introduced with Patch 5.4.

There have also been a number of fairly large changes behind the scenes, some of which I felt were needed but may prove controversial.

This includes the deletion of the QuestTracker module. This module was deemed “out of scope” of Chinchilla’s development goals and has been removed, but the options to show/hide the quest tracker’s “Objectives” header text and collapse button proved to be popular features and these have been brought back as options in the Appearance module instead.

You can download the latest version of Chinchilla from either Curse or WoWinterface. As always, if you find any errors or want to provide feedback, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
