A preview version of the new Plugin API is now available. You can get an impression on what is possible with the API, and you can also start working on your first plugins.
You find a new section in the forum now, which is dedicated to the Plugin API. You can ask questions or discuss any API related things there, or request new features in the Feature Requests section.
In contrary to the Lua API, a documentation (JavaDoc, which also contains some examples) is also available. In can be downloaded with the Plugin API (you can load it in your IDE and access it while coding), or alternatively you can watch the online version here: https://javadoc.rising-world.net/
Unfortunately you can't add the plugins to your server yet. The servers will be updated within the next weeks, you can take advantage of the time to get used to the new API, or to prepare your plugins. Once the servers have been updated, the old Lua API will still be supported for ~ 4-8 weeks until it will be removed.
Please note that a few events and functions are still missing, they will be added soon. If there is something wrong with the new API, or you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to leave your feedback
