Are there any plans to move to oAuth style authentication to access the API? If so, what would the schedule be like?
The answer to this is that we can definitely see the advantages of using OAuth and would like to implement it.
It has been requested, although nowhere near as much as other features we've recently released and are currently working on. As such, it's one of the many things on our list and hasn't yet been scheduled for release.
We'll let you know here when it's scheduled.
Any update on oauth?
We're stoked to announce OAuth 2 support in the API today. Check the announcement over at the API Announcements forum for details.
