The Addon was completely recoded and is now known under the label "ArenaLive [Spectator]". It is recommended to delete any old version called "ArenaLive" before updating to this new version.
The use of this addon is to enable people to organise WoW-Arena Tournaments in an easy manner and it tries to bring some kind of spectator mode into World of Warcraft.

What this AddOn is not
- ArenaLive isn't a real spectator mode, it is just a unitframeset that is designed like one.
- ArenaLive isn't designed for everyday arena usage, but for tournaments/spectating wargames only.
- There is a unit frame addon that uses the same code for unit frames as ArenaLive [Spectator] called ArenaLive [UnitFrames]. You can find it here: http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/arenalive-unitframes
- You can follow me on twitter to get information about coming updates for ArenaLive and to contact me.
