New CurseForge and WowAce Sites

Hey folks,

The CurseForge dev team is preparing some of the bigger, final touches on what will become the new WoW CurseForge and WowAce sites, and they're hoping to have everything wrapped up by the end of the month. When these new sites go live, there will be some noticeable improvements for developers of WoW projects.

The old, unreliable, and unpredictable Packager is being retired -- its replacement will be many times faster, much more resilient, and able to package multiple projects simultaneously. Additionally, the new Packager will be capable of operating directly from repositories on GitHub and Bitbucket via webhooks.

The Localization System is also being heavily upgraded, including a new UI to better serve translators -- it will be available for all projects. There's also no longer going to be a requirement to use a Version Control System to take advantage of this extremely useful feature. The new behavior is to have the localizations injected into any uploaded or packaged file for projects which have the feature enabled.

We’re all very excited to be able to announce this, and look forward to many more improvements in the future. Thanks for all the support.

Torhal and the entire CurseForge team

EDIT: When the transition occurs, repositories will be offline for roughly 24 hours. Normal file uploads will still be accessible.
