oQueue version 1.6.9 has dropped as a mandatory update!

What does a mandatory update mean?

A mandatory update is declared when changes are made to the messaging protocol that oQueue uses to communicate. With oQueue version 1.6.9, there has also been changes to the blizzard addon api. Due to these changes to the addon api and oQueue messaging protocol, users who are slow to update to 1.6.9 from earlier versions will fail to see group information and may experience a larger than normal number of LUA error messages.

As always you can pickup the latest vesion from the authors website over at, or download it using the icebox self updater also available at

PLEASE NOTE: If you have just update to version 1.6.9, and there are no premades available on the find premade tab, please be patient as due to the protocol changes there will be communication disruptions until users with versions older than 1.6.9 update.
