This is a beta release of the new EZ-Builder with plug-in framework. Throughout the next few releases, we will be adding more details on plug-in development and demonstrating plug-in capabilities. This release of EZ-Builder has the back-end nearly completely rewritten to support plugin controls. This makes EZ-Builder the first and only true robot platform by providing hardware, 3d printable components, software, appstore, mobile apps, and now user submitted custom controls. I'm very excited about this new feature and know it will bring many amazing plugin developers.

Plug-ins will be available here: http://www.ez-robot.com/EZ-Builder/plugins/

The plug-in framework enables users, companies and organizations the ability to create controls in EZ-Builder. If you're looking to support a new sensor, robot, controller, or add additional features, you can now create controls of your own.

*Note: this is a beta release, expect a few bugs:)

More details will be added soon - specifically a video on how to install plug-ins and how to begin developing your own in Visual Studio.

@alan, video recording was announced over a year ago as being disabled until some encoder licensing can be arranged. Until then, it's still disabled and is not considered a bug. However, I would love to get that item off my list!:)

Ps, with the plugin architecture you can create your own video recording plugin! Or any developers can as well. I'm hoping this provides gateway to assist my developments such as video recording

The software has undergone rigorous tests against previous functionality with no behavioral differences. The beta status is applied to the plugin architecture and ui implementing and does not affect the ezbuilder native features.

Hope that helps:D

Thanks! I'm stoked to open ezbuilder to the development community to help make it even greater. There only so much time in a day and my list is getting longer, not shorter:). This will help that!

I definitely missed that. The last I saw in the threads where Justin reported it and Jeremie confirmed it was that you were going to take a look.

The latter thread just 6 months ago, and you didn't mention there that you knew the cause or that the feature was disabled.

You know I am not one to complain too much -- except when I am right and you are wrong:) like the DHCP issue , but really, if a feature is disabled, it should be labeled as such or removed from the UI and/or at least mentioned in the documentation when you click the ?. Neither is the case.
