Elite Dangerous Market Connector 5.2.1

What Is Elite Dangerous Market Connector?

Elite Dangerous Market Connector ("EDMC") is a third-party application for use with Frontier Developments' game "Elite Dangerous". Its purpose is to facilitate supplying certain game data to, and in some cases retrieving it from, a number of websites and other tools.

To achieve this it utilises the Journal Files written by the game when played on a PC. It also makes use of Frontier's Companion API ("Frontier's CAPI"), accessible once you've authorised this application.

EDMC has a plugin system which many other developers have made use of to extend its functionality.

Find out more on the EDMC Wiki.

NB: This application is of no use with a Console game account. We now test against, and package with Python 3.9.7. As a consequence of this we no longer support Windows 7, due to Python 3.9.x itself not supporting Windows 7.

As has become routine now, various anti-virus software are reporting a false positive on our installer and/or files it contains. I've pre-emptively uploaded the installer to VirusTotal if you want to check what it's saying. Please see our Troubleshooting/AV-false-positives FAQ for further information.

Release 5.2.1

This release primarily addresses the issue of the program asking for Frontier authorization much too often.

  • Actually utilise the Frontier Refresh Token when the CAPI response is "Unauthorized". The re-factoring of this code to make CAPI queries threaded inadvertently prevented this.

Thanks to all that reported this problem, helped track it down, and tested the release candidates.
