For those of you that like TidyPlates, here is a "fan update" that seems to fix most problems.  It's not clear if the developer is coming back to officially fix them, so this isn't available through Twitch/Curse

If you use Z-Perl, it hasn't been updated yet.  There are two alternatives:

https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/perl-classic-unit-frames

and

https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/shadowed-unit-frames

I happened to install the shadowed unit frames first, it's a good replacement, though I still had to set a bunch of options to the way I want them.  The classic perl was going to take some fiddling

I’ve used shadowed unit frames for years. It is quite good for laying out all the things how you want them. It doesn’t have the same overhead as I’ve experienced with other mods like x-perl in the past, which I also like.

By "overhead" do you mean the code is cleaner and doesn't take as much space/memory to run, Inomi?

Yes, precisely.

Incidentally, Z-perl has been updated.

I haven't downloaded it, but it looks like the person that did the TidyPlates fixes I posted above will be trying to maintain the addon for a while.  Following conventions, he's renamed it TidyPlatesContinued, and it's on curse/twitch under that name.  Note that you'll lose any settings you made, since the name changed.  The author does offer a way to copy over the settings, but it's a seperate program you have to run.  At the moment the fixed TidyPlates I posted above is working fine for me, eventually I'll switch over to the continued.

Tidyplates continued has it's own site now:

https://luxocracy.github.io/TidyPlatesContinued/

No idea why they stopped showing on Curse.
