Do you write plugins only because it's open source? I don't get why that means "there's not much point" now.
I think you guys probably read my question the wrong way, i said "is there much point in making plugins still?", by that i meant if the app/exporter could possibly be changed at any time would there be much point in developing plugins before the changes. I also have/had no idea what the changes would involve in regard to the current system, maybe i should have wrote that question in a better way though
As for your question no not really, i think open-source can help with learning and getting to be a better coder though but i would be just as happy to code with a closed source apps as long as the SDKs they use are not too restrictive.
