With the new raid being released and people looking to update their addons to keep up, this is happening with increased frequency.
Being one of those people who just been waiting for two weeks for an answer regarding this issue that you call a "duh, progress" situation rather then an issue I have to say Zen is right.
Way back in the day, there was the Wowace Updater before Curse had their own.
Then Curse Client 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 (Windows only) and 5.0.
Perhaps, but a lack of an official announcement means people are coming to me thinking it's an issue with the addon and not Curse.
To me, this discussion is similar to someone being surprised at Windows XP, Vista, 8.1, "suddenly" not being supported by Microsoft as soon as Windows 10 came out.
Yes, I know some of those were stopped before 10, but that isn't the point. But that still doesn't explain how or why people are shocked, mad, or surprised.
I am seriously not impressed with this "don't care" attitude Okay, I have to admit this up front: I don't work for Twitch; I'm just a volunteer moderator.
And if what you are saying is true, then perhaps there was or is a better way to inform people that the Curse Client was defunct.
