You can write your own shaders with the SDK.
Yeah, and i also can write my own engine or game creator.
3rd party plugins/effects made via SDK are something optional, not some granted charity labor you can count on. Beside, your answer do not match the question.
I was not asking: "hey how can feature A, B and C come to reality?"
I was asking "Are there any NEWS?" Aka - is someone still working on this? Do anybody remember? Then "bump" if not. Because the few missing shaders would be very helpful.
So you come to a restaurant and ask do they serve pancakes. And as an answer - the owner tells that you can go home and make your own pancakes.
Great. Cool. Awesome. You knew that. Yet still you've came here. Because if making those pancakes all by yourself would be an option - you probably would STAY home. Quite logical, isn't it?
So yeah. Is anybody, from the official dev. team still working on new shaders/effect? If not - could your spare some time and make those few missing, please? If not - why?
I like knowing whats the exact status quo. So i can figure out a workaround if its needed.
