So you're out stealing, and want to know at a glance what you've got. Thief's Knapsack provides a status window for just that! Displays the following, any of which you may disable:
The total value of stolen items you're carrying.
The total number of stolen items you're carrying.
The total number of Recipe and Racial Motif items you're carrying.
The remaining sells and launders left for the day.
The average value of the items (off by default).
The estimated daily return you'll get if you fence items of like value (the average times your remaining sells).
A graph of your stolen items' quality.
All in one tiny, toggleable window, with some tweaking depending on your stealing habits:
Don't count junked stolen items.
Don't include recipes in item/value count.
Dynamically show and hide bounty/bounty timer.
Thief's Knapsack will now display the bounty and an estimated time-remaining on your bounty. This may be off by up to minutes. Also, I haven't tested with very high bounties to know if the numbers change.
How does it work? It appears that bounty decays every 180 seconds. And this works consistently if you stand still and watch the clock. However, if you're doing other things, your bounty can decay slower or faster, and I haven't yet found any consistent reason, even accounting for drift / loading screens. I've seen bounty decay in 170 seconds, and 230+ seconds.
But every time your bounty changes, the estimate will also update, so you should have a reasonably-close time. The error should be no more than a minute or two.
Elmseeker's Note: The shorter the remaining time the more accurate it becomes. For instance, I had a bounty that said it would take 12 hours to degrade. At the first update it dropped to 11 hours, then dropped further with each successive update as the bounty dropped. In the end when there were only about 30 minutes left or so it was only off by about 30 seconds.
Fence Reset Timer
This is a simple countdown that should tell you how long til the fence resets. After investigation, it appears this is a fixed time (3am UTC), which means this feature isn't that useful. Since the bar is already getting cluttery, you can turn this off and still get the timer with the command /tk.fencetime on demand.

Cleaned up a little more code. Want to keep this as efficient as possible.
Hide in menus bug...fixed! Now 100% working as intended!
Cleaned up some hackish code to make it run smoother.
Fixed an error where hide in menus option would hide the bar at launch and not reshow it unless you brought up a menu and closed it. Reversed it actually...still working on nailing this one down.
Added donation button and menu to the options panel.
Fixed some localization issues.
Fixed an issue where sometimes, when moving the window, the new position wouldn't save correctly and it would move back after relogging or reloading the UI.
Fixed an error where hide in menus option would hide the bar at launch and not reshow it unless you brought up a menu and closed it.

Adjusted bounty timer. It now gets the time based on a 360 second time rather than 180 This is more in line with the way Swiftly Forgotten works. Seems to be a bit more accurate but still needs adjusting for swiftly forgotten skill. Working on it, but it should be a little better now than it was.
Fixed a bug that would make the UI window movable again after reloading the UI or logging out even if the option was set to "lock".
Changed file structure and name to avoid conflicts with the original Thief's Knapsack when using Minion to update Addons.
