Release History

 
This document gives information on the API Developer Kits released to Archicad. These sections give a complete list of the shipped API Development Kits as well as of the new features implemented in the appropriate maintenance versions.

If you encounter a new development in the API, which must be used to code your add-on’s functionality, you have to be aware that your add-on will not run under specific (usually earlier) releases of the server application. You should check for the release version with the function ACAPI_Environment (APIEnv_ApplicationID, ...) to get the main and release version numbers of the server application.

Please note, that as a general strategy of GRAPHISOFT, we try to avoid developing new API services in the maintenance releases. Only the absolutely necessary developments are done there, since an add-on must be shipped for a main version of Archicad instead of a specific maintenance release. The functions below are rather bug fixes than new services, as these missing features prevent a full, consistent solution.

The version numbers of the API reflect the major release and the maintenance release numbers of Archicad.

From Archicad 10 the version number of the API Development Kit is the same as the corresponding Archicad version.
