Draws a line extending from the player arrow on the world map to make it easier to see exactly where you're heading.
For anyone else having issues with this addon not working after DF pre-patch, a temporary solution is to delete line 50 in MapLine.luaThis will however make the line a solid white, but it's the only jank bandaid I had the brain capacity to figure out at this moment.
Check my comment below for a proper fix.

Thanks for locating the issue. While not a perfect solution, if you replace line 50 with the following, it will be slightly less eye-bleedingly white:

Thanks for the contribution!I noticed that a different Addon I'm using was having issues with SetGradientAlpha as well, and they implemented a change that fixed their issues. Based on their fix, if you replace line 50 with the following code, the line will be exactly as it was before the Dragonflight pre-patch:
Line:SetGradient('HORIZONTAL', CreateColor(0, 0, 0, 0.5), CreateColor(1, 0, 0, 0.8))
I'm submitting a PR on github for it as well, in case the dev checks that more often than the comments on here.
The addon isn't available for download to wotlk classic, but downloading the newest 9.2.7 version and just copy pasting it to your classic folder works perfectly. If you wish to change the thickness of the line, you can set the value in the MapLine.lua file on the very bottom line (row 204) Line:SetThickness(2 / scale).
On line 51 there is also a Line:SetThickness(2), but changing this value doesnt seem to do anytthing. Stick to the bottom one :)
Extra: change the ## interface line in the MapLine.toc to 30400, to prevent the "Load out of date AddOns".
I am was using this addon in Classic.
Going to test it in TBC....
Works in TBC, just says "It Belongs In Retail"....
This addon on Twitch has the version from 2018.
I've issued a small pull request that fixes the issue with the uldum assault zones.
Does not draw a line in the new 8.3 Assault Zones (i.e. Nzoth Assualt maps). if you leave the zone then it works again.
Edit: Only seems to not work in Ulduum, Vale of Eternal Blossom works.

Just want to add my support for this item. When you're used to having the line there, aiming at a destination on the map that's more than a couple seconds away without it is hit-or-miss. Setting out from Ramkahan to any of the quest destinations is difficult at best.
Please fix this!
Help us, Obi-wan Semlar, you're our only hope!
Works in classic if you wanna tag it. Also this doesn't work in Tanaan Jungle/Garrrison for some reason.
This AddOn is ridiculously useful!! Love it! Thanks a ton for maintaining it :)
Seems to be working rather intermittently since 8.0? Just disappears sometimes, then randomly comes back later.

Love the add-on!
Would it be feasible to update with an "easy" on/off toggle? (i.e. without need to reload addons?) /mapline toggle (?)
Would be helpful for those who use this add-on to map certain things, but also like screenshots of zones sans line.
