Is it? If not, will a new version be ready in time for the October 1st shut off?

Is there a plan to make a new version use the new Api?

I ask as the API 1 is presently experiencing some issues at the moment, and from what I gather there is not much priority to fix them as this will encourage/push developers to using the new Api.

Also, every single user is going to need a unique login/token.

Do we have a Doomsday clock?!!

fairly certain there will be a change as part of the work with getting the python scrapers up to snuff.

Indeed the work on the python scraper appears to have used the 2.0 API however it's still a work in progress, see

However that will only be a solution for v18 if it gets completed, so there will also need to be a strategy for v17 and below, whether that be update the existing thetvdb xml scraper or advise use of tmdb tv xml scraper.
