This week we turned three years old and finished v1.0 of our upload API.
This week (May 1) devot:ee turned three years old. We're going strong and are looking forward to the next three years and beyond. We keep our launch announcement up for old time's sake, secret code and all.
Thanks, everyone, for your support and patronage.
Recently Rolled Out
We think our new Upload API is ready for general use, so we're announcing Upload API 1.0. The Upload API allows developers to upload new files, version numbers, release dates, and release notes for their commercial or free add-ons, without having to log in to devot:ee to do so. This idea was inspired by Rob Sanchez (@_rsan), who also helped code it up. Thanks, Rob!
If you make use of the upload API using Github, Beanstalk, a custom script, or some other method that we might not have thought possible, we'd love to hear from you so we can post tutorials on how to use it for the benefit of other developers.
We've got quite the list of feature requests growing for the Devot:ee Monitor add-on. We're trying to address those as we have time.
