Squared is a highly-customizable unit frame addon similar to the widely-known WoW addon "Grid". It provides a very compact view of health for you, your group, your warband, or your scenario. Clicking on a square will target the associated player.

Notes about recent patches
3.8.10 (Patch 1.4.1): Improved compability with game profile system and fixed tooltips.
3.8.9 (Patch 1.4.0): Fixed 1.4.0 changes: CareerLines changes
3.8.8 (Patch 1.3.6): Fixed 1.3.6 changes: RightClick Menus and Assist, compatible with PTS Built 527.
3.8.7 (Patch 1.3.5): If you were using the "Plain" textures (the defaults), change them to something else to make Squared work properly again. There's a "Plain (1.3.5)" option if you want to maintain the same appearance.
Added in 3.7: Tooltips for units in group/warband mode. Hold down the shift key while mousing over a unit to view its tooltip.
3.6 features a fairly significant optimization for WAR 1.2. I highly recommend upgrading to it for decreased lag when in large groups.
Added in 3.5: Easy exporting and importing of settings. The panel to do so is in the GUI.
Added in 3.4: Toggle/settings button. By default, it's located on the left side of the minimap, but you can move it wherever you wish from the Layout Editor. Left-clicking the toggle button will show/hide Squared (same as changing the "completely disable Squared" setting), while right-click will show/hide the Squared Configurator.
Added in 3.3: Settings profiles. Profiles allow you to keep different sets of settings and swap among them at will. In addition, each character will remember which profile they were using last, and automatically load that profile when logging in to the character.
(For more details all on Squared versions, see the change log.)
To open the configuration GUI, type /sqr (or /squared).
If you want to use the settings for one of the user-submitted examples, find the specific one you want in the Squared Image Gallery and click on its name to go to the description page, which will have a Squared Import Format block that you can plug into Squared's Import Settings window.
Reporting bugs and requesting features
While I monitor many difference places, including Curse/CurseForge comments, various forums, and email, I give the highest priority to bugs and feature requests which are posted on the Squared Ticket Tracker on Lighthouse.
For click-casting, see ISHealBot.
For range-fading, see RangeFadingSquared.
For saving cpu ressources, I suggest using DeepSleep.
Addon developers interested in developing plugins for Squared should look at the Squared plugin API page.
I wasn't going to put up a donation link at first, but enough people have asked/prodded me about it that I figured I might as well. Please, don't feel pressured to donate, I enjoy writing addons just for the sake of helping out, but if you really want to, there's a Pledgie campaign here.
