Elite Dangerous Market Connector PRE-Release 5.2.0-beta1

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 do 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 3.9.6. As a consequence of this we no longer support Windows 7, due to Python 3.9.x itself not supporting Windows 7.

Pre-Release 5.2.0-beta1

I've just put together Pre-Release 5.2.0-beta1 which, amongst other things, will support the forthcoming new EDDN schemas to allow for more data to flow from senders to listeners.  Check out that URL for the changelog and to download either the installer or source.

As the name implies, this is a beta and some things might be broken, so please only install this if you're prepared to then make good bug reports to help us beat it into shape for release.

Final 5.2.0 will not be released before Thursday 21st October 2021, as that's when the new EDDN schemas will go live.
