EDK 4.2.27.0 (YC-118-9 1.0)

\o guys,

EDK 4.2.27.0 (2016-10-17)

This release updates your database to YC-118-9 1.0.

Other than that, a few leftovers of old code in the installer has been updated, that was incompatible with PHP7. If any of you guys encounter problems
when using PHP7 with EDK, please let us know!

There's another notable change in this version, which primarily seems to be interesting for developer, but makes it much more easy for them to create mods using EVE's SSO.
Mods now have the possibility to disable EDK's page caching mechanism when an event is fired by EDK that the mods have subscribed to. For an example take a look a Snitch's SSO Mod,
that lets you log in to your killboard via SSO and controls posting comments, lets you post your own character's kills available via the API and compare your stats against any other pilot!

Hi,

you are right that the last releases did not bring anything new, and I'm sorry for that. RL has been ramping up lately, resulting in a lack of time (and, admittedly, motivation) to develop new features. I'm running in "maintenance mode", so to speak. On top of that, I'll be on a business trip next week and the week after that, so the EDK database update for the Novemeber release will be late as well :-/

However, it seems CCP just released the next milestone for EDK: the ESI API. Since they're planning on shutting down both the XML API and CREST, it seems necessary to focus time and energy on removing CREST and XML from EDK and switching to ESI.
This will take some time and increase the minimum requirements of EDK from PHP 5.2 to at least 5.5 I guess.

So that's definitely an exciting prospect, even if it so mostly for the developer. However, entering API Keys will be a thing of the past, since ESI completely relies on SSO. That's quite some change for the user, that surely can be built on.

Best Regards,
Salvoxia
