EDK 4.4.3.0 (July 2019 1.0)

Post by Salvoxia » Tue Aug 06, 2019 10:33

\o guys,

after a loooong time on the last version, there's finally an update!

This update primarily updates the static data export to the latest version (June 2019), as well as updates the ESI library. The latter will take care of deprecation warnings in the ESI logs.

Of course all the hotfixes for the last version are included. This changes the way zKBFetch works a little bit. If you already applied the hotfixes, you already know what's going an there, but here's a quick explanation anyway:
Changes in the zKB API require API calls to include a start date as well as an end date. Before, EDK only used a start date and fetched a number of kills starting from that date. Due to the requirement to specify an end date as well, zKBFetch now focuses on fetching kills for a single day per cycle. So the most time you can cover with a single fetch cycle is one day (even if there are no kills for that day). That's just to keep in mind if you want to fetch the whole kill history for an entity. You can use suitable short cronjob intervals for fetching though (but no shorter than your PHP maximum execution time).

A thanks goes to Gadicuz for providing a number of bugfixes as well.

Hi, I'm having some trouble with this.
The update installs without error to 4.4.3.0 in my case but after doing so I'm not able to post a killmail. Posting the mail returns an empty page.

I searched around google for some edk boards and tried to post a mail to them and they all gave the same result (they were mostly running 4.4.2.0 though). I notice a couple spit out error codes rather than a blank page:

Code: Select all

Error connecting to the API (https://esi.evetech.net/v2/universe/names/?datasource=tranquility)'
On the board in question, I have a feed syndication setup that now returns:

Code: Select all

[404] Error connecting to the API (https://esi.evetech.net/v3/universe/names/?datasource=tranquility)
Any idea what's going on? After some searching I'm not even sure what logfile would collect this error (/cache/error.log doesn't appear to be useful).

Hi,

that's due to CCP messing up the universe/names endpoint for translating entity IDs to names. Refer to https://github.com/esi/esi-issues/issues/1134 .
It seems this will only be fixed after the weekend on CCP's end.

A year ago or so there was a time when CCP disabled that endpoint due to abuse (ID scraping). During that time, EDK used entity specific endpoints for ID translation.
That code should still be available in Git and should still be working. I'll dig around and report back with some modified files.

Best Regards,
Salvoxia

Hi,

I checked out the old code. Unfortunately, the functionality it was using was removed from ESI last year.
So I'm afraid there's not feasable quick fix for this situation, and we'll have to wait for CCP to fix this problem on Monday.
Sorry for that.

Best Regards,
Salvoxia

Not a huge problem. Thanks for finding the root cause and looking into a potential fix.

Everything appears to be working, it was just a coincidence for me that I decided to upgrade right as that bug was present.
