Just FYI, since it was already mentioned in the latest release e-mail: We have decided to discontinue support for SketchUp 2015. This will hopefully allow us a bit faster development.

Just wondering what are the Sketchup 2015 API differences with 2016 that makes the move.
It is the new C API changes?

Well, I respect the team's decision and if it helps the development of Sketchup plugin to better focus and come up with a more robust one.
Anyway, software update is always forward.

We're not using the C API since that allows only reading/writing the SketchUp scene files, not runtime interaction with the SketchUp itself. For that we're using the Ruby API.

There have been some changes from 2015 to 2016 with most of them apperently undocumented. It was very time consuming to test all our changes with  both versions and to modify code which works perfectly in 2016 to work in 2015 as well (without breaking functionality for 2016 and testing that again).

Can you remove the SU2015 install option from the Beta MSI? I ran it for a bit of fun and it makes 2015 unusable :) Removing the install fixes the problem thankfully....
