OCS API 1.3 released

By Frank
Published: Sep 2 2009

10 minutes ago I released the open collaboration services API specification in version 1.3
This is a quite big release and includes important new features, user requests and bugfixes.
I also updated openDesktop.org to support all the documented features.

The most important changes are:

- upload, edit and delete of entries like applications and artwork over the API.
- uploading and deleting of screenshots of applications or artwork.
- search content entries from a specific user or myself.

This finally enables the GHNS dialog to upload data directly from inside applications.
This also allows publishing and updating of apps and plasmoids directly from plasmate, KDevelop, Qt Creator or the new KDE SDK. I think is an important new features if you want to share applications or other stuff with others.

Fan Management - get all fans of a specific content entry. - become a fan of an application or artwork - remove me from the fans list of an application or artwork You can show the fans of your app directly in the application and users can become fans from within you app. This is a nice features to make the Social Desktop reality.

Anonymous API access
Some api call like person search for example can be access without authentification now.
We limit the number of API call from specific IP address to prevent DOS attacks.
You can do 50 API call from one IP address every 15min. Or 200 API calls from one IP every 15min if you are a authenticated user. I hope this is enough for everybody.
Now users can use the "show users nearby" plasmoid without registering.
This is a feature request from the Kubuntu guys.

All data can optionaly be fetched in JSON if you dont like XML. Just add the format=json parameter. The default and recommended format ist still XML

I hope you like the features.

By the way. We already have great submissions for the Social Desktop Contest. And I´m sure we will have great social features in KDE 4.4

This is all big news.

After I finish a little client/server program for ASUS G series computers I am thinking of dedicating some spare time to implement a little terminal client in GAWK which, perhaps at some point, will come with a GTK interface for users of XFCE, LXDE, Gnome, and a variety of WMs.

By the way -if anybody else is reading- I take this opportunity to ask you to contact me if you are interested in collaborating with the development process or just with your ideas.
