Many thanks to Gui Talarico for maintaining this invaluable resource!
Awesome, awesomely effective and awesomely simple web site, btw :-)

Revit 2017.2.1 Update
A new update for Revit 2017 has been published as well, with too many enhancements to list here.
Please refer to the release notes for full details.
Here is the direct link to download and the readme doc.
Forge Scopes Enforcement by May 22
As part of the continual Forge platform security improvements, enforcement of the scopes requirement for all access tokens will begin on May 22, 2017.
If you have apps created before June 15, 2016, you need to update your code so that any access tokens generated by your app request scopes.
Calls without scopes will be rejected after May 22.
For full details, please refer to the Forge OAuth scopes docs.
Forge View and Data API Countdown
As said, the clock is running now.
Convert your existing app from the obsolete View and Data API to the Forge Viewer API.
Consequently, on July 17, 2017 the View and Data API will close down.
Please migrate your code from the obsolete platform version
v1 to the new platform
v2 before July 17, 2017, or your application will stop working.
For more information, please refer to the detailed description
on migrating apps from Forge

Autodesk University Call for Proposals
As already mentioned, the Forge DevCon has been aligned with Autodesk University in Las Vegas.
