On the 15th of January Michael brookes created the thread "[PROPOSAL DISCUSSION] External API Requirements Thread". The OP said it would be open till the 16th of February. It stayed open a bit longer and was closed on the 19th. Last entry was by Michael brookes:
Its now more then two months after that last announcement. Perhaps I did miss something but can´t recall to having seen about the current status of the ED API. When looking at the thread a lot of commanders (my interpretation) are REALLY looking forward to that API and all the power it would bring to ED. It would enable all talented third party authors out there to create tools we atm can only dream about.Thread closed so I can begin the internal process reviewing the input on this thread. Thanks to everyone who has participated. We obviously have a lot of work going on so I anticipate it being a few weeks before the next update on this. I'll post when we have something.
Does anyone has some more information about the current state of the API. Perhaps someone from FD could shed some light on the matter.
Note: This is NOT a thread about discussing if third party tools are good for ED. FD themselves are going to create it, so they are positive about the idea.
Update: There have been some very interesting developments lately. See post #53.
