the first release of EDK 4.3 is finally here! With he minor version number being odd, this marks a testing release. There is no update / auto update from EDK4.2 to 4.3. As soon as 4.3 is considered stable, it will be pushed to 4.4, for which updates from 4.2 will be available.
The more test feedback we get, the quicker will it make it to 4.4
The main motivation for this release was to incorporate ESI. The database is still fully compatible with EDK 4.2, as are 90% of the mods (see the Installation paragraph below).
The old XML and CREST APIs have been removed completely from EDK, everything is now ESI based. That means you now are able to fetch all your character's/corp's/alliance's kills back to the very first killmail existing in the current format, directly from CCP.
For fetching kills via ESI, characters/corporations (read: directors) have register using CCP's Single Sign-on for fetching their killmails.
A thread describing how to register with CCP to enable SSO for your killboard can be found here.
Other than that, many little things have been changed. For example, EDK now writes its own error log.
