EDK (YC-119.8 1.0)

Post by Salvoxia »

\o guys,

EDK (2017-08-18)

This release updates your database to YC-119.8. CCP did not yet release an SDE update for Setpember.

This update contains two important fixes for manual kill posting using external links and for zKBFetch.

The EVE Client as well as zKillboard provide ESI links for individual kills. With this update, posting kills using these links is possible. Please keep in mind that internally, the kills are still fetched from CREST, as the ESI transition is not finished yet.

zKillboard changed their API output format to match ESI kill formatting. zKBFetch has been updated accordingly. A big thanks goes to Squizz for keeping in touch and us up to date!
Another little change has been made, that most of you shouldn't notice, but is big in terms of maintainability: zKBFetch now ignores the "Skip non-verifiable kills" setting and always skips such mails. Since zKillboard only provides kills fetched directly from CCP, there shouldn't be any non-verifiable kills. The big benefit is that only the kill ID, timestamp and kill hash are taken from the zKB API, and all kills provided by this are then fetched directly from CCP. So we don't need to worry about parsing whole kills from zKB.
