We started our open beta phase more than a year ago. After years of development, 6 open betas and 6 release candidates the final Version of our totally rewritten Eqdkp-Plus is released today. Since the start of the beta we fixed a lot of bugs and implemented some lost features. We encourage all users of Eqdkp-Plus 0.6 to upgrade to our latest Version as the support for Eqdkp-Plus 0.6 ends today. While fixing the last bugs we started to work on the next major version of our software. There will be some additional news on our facebook/twitter channel the next weeks.
By the way, every community member can add his Extension to our new online-repository, in order to make it accessable for other EQdkp Plus User.
