We are progressing still with our update to Betbotpro for Betfair API-NG. It is not going as fast as we would like but we are making progress, even though we have not made as much progress as we had anticipated by this stage in December.

There is not alot we can add to this at the moment but rest assured we are working flat out to get this sorted as soon as possible.

We are not yet at the stage of submitting the app to betfair for security approval and checking but we are hoping to get the first version to Betfair before the xmas holidays start so we can get an idea of where we stand.

We will let you all know any further developments as soon as we can.

    Hi yet another date has passed we all need to understand BBP are all behind this mess, it is clear they are not up to the job. We just need to realise we will be very lucky to see this up and running by next year.
    I hope nobody feels they need to congratulate PPB when they get it to work, just remember they got their new program tradingfox to work in priority over our program.
    Thanks Bob

    Total shambles.. I have my own software which, with regard to using the new API, is no less complicated than BetBotPro.. My, one only, programmer started work on the conversion less than a month before the deadline, and 3 separate programs, with 10 different modules, were all converted with plenty of time to spare.. Can not believe how long it is taking to get anything sorted..!

    I’m that confident that this software is going to ready this year, That i’ve pre booked all 4 of my betfair holidays, I’ve aleady lost about £1000 worth of points and don’t want lose the rest due to this lack of organisation and preperation for the api change over, which all the other softwares clearly prepared for much better with a very quick transition to the new api,
    This kind of service belongs in a christmas cracker.

    On the 4th of December you stated on your blog that you were 80% there, So roughly this amounts to about 20% completion every 2 weeks, Seen as though you knew about the api change over from the beginning of November or probably even before that. Well it’s now the 16th of December, So you must surely be a couple of days away from being 100% finished with updating the software to the new api?
    I’d also like to know how other betfair apps like bf manager were able to change over to the new api straight away and bbp could not?

    We would like to think we are only days away, we are checking updates to the software daily. If you read the forum the reasons are already documented. We cant change it now, we can only fix it as soon as we can. You’ll be notified one the new version is ready.

    And roughly how long is that going to be?
