    In an Office community call in the fall of 2019 they said that they hadn't been working on the PowerPoint API at all and that it probably wasn't going to change soon due to the lack of interest. When I asked why they won't at least open source it so that we get a chance to work on it, they answered that in such a case they had to open source all of MS Office's source code which MS were not willing to do.

    During an Office community call in March I asked the question if anyone was working on a PowerPoint specific Javascript API. They said that no one was working on it and we should voice our demand louder if we wanted that to change.

    I understand that a PowerPoint API might not be on top of your list. But it's now 2018 and nothing has happened. At least give us a signal where things are going: Will VSTO be discontinued? Is there a PowerPoint API in development? And when will it be probably available? I have stakeholders asking me to support multi-platform and I have no idea what to tell them...
