Where is the addon.txt?!

Hello, i havent played gmod since months, and now i see there is no addon.txt anymore…?!

I just want to set up my own server again, and want to install all my addons.
I downloaded ACF and Wiremod into addons folder, and didnt found addon.txt… why was it removed?
can i load the addons without info/addon file, like a normal addon?

very confusing…

btw. i dont want to use workshop, because i modify all the addons i use.

Yep. addon.txt is not required anymore, garry changed that a while back.
