Carbonite is an Addon for Blizzard®'s World of Warcraft™ with quite a lot of features. Originally developed by Carbon Based Creations, LLC, the code was later released under GPL and its development continued by Rythal; he is back and he brought some people to help him. In its current incarnation, it is split into different modules:
Carbonite has more Features than you could shake a stick at.
Carbonite replaces your beloved, yet antiquated minimap and world map (which can still be accessed with [Alt]-[M]) with something that resembles an advanced GPS more than something printed on mere paper. You can use your mouse to navigate and scroll-zoom. Mini map and world map are actually the same, the latter just being bigger, so you have all the mapping informations in one single place.
You can simply change the size and position like in any modern user interface. The title bar also shows your position and speed. Superimposed on the map are Point-of-interest icons and dots for your group members, once you scroll into detail. Your movement will leave a trail (if you don't disable that option), so you can easily see where you have been wandering - a great help in subterranean labyrinths.
If you hover your mouse on the map, a tooltip will show you everything Carbonite knows about your mouse position, which can be incredibly helpful for sharing positions.
You'll never need to ask the guards for directions again. Find NPCs of all kinds in a simple to browse menu and receive an easy route to whatever point you choose (that replaces TomTom). Right-click a point on the map, click "Goto..." and you'll find an arrow showing you where to go on the shortest route. This HUD can be moved on your screen, but it can also be fixed (see Options). There is also a guide that will list everything from a like auctioneers to z like zones for your convenience - everything in there can be set as a target for your HUD.
When there are conflicting targets (e.g. Nagrand in Outworlds or on Draenor), your HUD will select the one closest to you. You can of course also disable the HUD in the settings.
With just 3 clicks, you can set up your HUD to show the shortest route through all your gathering locations in your zone. Farming was never easier. Also, Carbonite will remember all locations you have ever looted.
With Carbonite.Quests, you'll have all the informations you need for questing at hand.
Ever wanted to put a sign on a certain spot, saying "here be dragons"? Now you're able to do so, using Carbonite.Notes.
...never was so easily tracked, thanks to Carbonite.Weekly.
Carbonite.Warehouse is a list of all your bags and the banks of all your characters, searchable, conveniently in one place.
At the moment, Carbonite and its modules can be found in different places:
You can also use the Curse Client to keep up to date
This version is meant for Developers only and can be found here. If you don't already know what to do on here, it's probably not for you.

You can help improve Carbonite! All you need to do is to configure your Quest settings to gather quest data and upload your quest data here:
You'll find the collected data within Carbonite.Quests.lua inside your
[WoW]\WTF\Account\[Account]\SavedVariables directory. [WoW] is your World of Warcraft installation folder and [Account] is your internal account number, something like "52982412#1". Thank you for your help!
The contents of each module go into your [WoW]\Interface\Addons folder.
