Release Notes

- PLEASE NOTE: This is a beta of Rawr 2.2. It has not received the same level of testing that we normally put into releases, but we're releasing it in its current form, due to the large number of changes. If you do run into bugs, please post them on our Issue Tracker. Please use the current release version, Rawr 2.1.9, if you encounter showstopping bugs in Rawr 2.2.0b4. Thanks!
- Multithreading! Rawr will now better utilize your processor, resulting in a 40% to 100% speed boost for rendering most charts, and optimizing. There is potential for hangs from this, so please test as much as you can, and report if you can make it hang, along with very explicitly telling us what you were doing when it hung, and including the character file. NOTE: If you encounter frequent hangs in b4, you can turn off Multithreading in the Tools > Options dialog. If you can't get to that dialog before it hangs, you can edit the config file at /Data/Rawr.Base.dll.config. PLEASE report any hangs you experience!

Reviews for this release

It is a marked improvement over the previous release. I would like to point out that the Feral talents for SOTF and HOTW are not showing their changes.

Great product. I like the changes in gems which allow for great dps optimization. However, you have to include a check box that forces defensive cap for tanks.

The gemming system is pretty intuitive, and it works smoothly, but warlocks bewarned the talent trees in this beta are a bit whacked, having been only partially updated to 3.1. Also, the numbers seem strange at times for warlock dps, Comparable systems of determining theoretical dps give very different numbers.

I like the change to gems in the new system. I was saddened to see the MP5 stat left as an important stat for an elemental Shaman, but I'll continue to hope for that to be removed.
