Hey guys, sorry for the delay in posting this, but I was asked by the higher ups to hold off on providing any of this information until today. As you have probably already seen elsewhere on the site, The new subscription-free pricing model that Alganon is adopting introduces the concept of Tribute. This is what part of the new API for the last patch includes.

tributeAmount = AvatarGetTribute() - This function returns the amount of Tribute that is currently credited to your account. It is the value you see next to the T icon in the avatar's money frame.
returns: tributeAmount (integer) The amount of tribute that is associated with your account (note that Tribute is account based and not side based or character based)

logEnabled, logName = ChatWindowGetLogging(chatWindowIndex) - Return logging information about a specific chat window
param: chatWindowIndex (integer) The chat window to return information for
returns: logEnabled (bool) True or false based on if logging for this window is currently enabled
returns: logName (string) The name of the log file that logging is sent to when eabled. This should be a valid filename such as 'chattab1.log'

ChatWindowSetLogging(chatWindowIndex, logEnabled, logName) - This function sets logging preferences for a given chat window index
param: chatWindowIndex (integer) The chat window to set logging preferences for
logEnable (bool) True or False if logging should be enabled for this chat window or not
logName (string) The base filename that chat logging should be sent to

It would seem that there was a need for a brief delay in the planned posting of the information. However, those that decided the delay was needed did not get a chance to let the rest of us know.

The only thing I can say at this point is to please be patient and wait until the information that this post refers to is made available before jumping to too many conclusions about it's meaning. I'm sure that said information will be released soon™.

I'm closing this topic, guys. The purpose was to discuss the API changes/additions, not to go down the road it's being taken.

Additional API posts will be created and talked about in other threads.
I'm currently drinking a Pepsi. Doesn't matter when you read this, it's most likely true.
