option to use LibHealComm-4.0 instead of Blizzard heal prediction API

Since the Blizzard heal prediction API only supports direct healing spells it is hard to see all the incoming heals on a target now.
Would it be possible to give the ELVUI user the option to use LibHealComm-4.0 instead like it was before?
Thank you.

It would be great to make this an option. There are certainly enough druids out there who would welcome that too.

Thanks!

Its definitely not going to be an option. I added LibHealComm back in for hots only for the time being.. until Blizzard fixes it.

Thank you for the release. It seems to be working the way it was before the API release. Just one remark based on my settings: if you are using Height: -1 for Heal Predictions I had to change it to another value and then back to -1 to get it working again at least on the Party and Raid Frames

first things first: thank you for the fix.

LibHealComm talks to everyone.. It slows down server performance. This is why MrBuds and I asked for Heal Prediction code to be implemented into Classic Era Expansions.

There isn't a single reason why there should be an option to use a library over the API from the game.

good. hopefully after this is implemented fully my only fear of the api being as slow as the threat api just has to be squished and i can stay heal :D

If the Heal Prediction API can communicate the difference between hots and direct heals that'd be good. One reason why filtering out HOTs is useful is to know if there is any incoming direct heavy heals on the main tank imminently while removing out the noise of the hots.
