Eye of the Krab now has a search box! Now we can finally find out how bad it is to import EMP S.
Other smaller fix: the structure and character name autocompletes when creating a route are now capitalization insensitive.
Market Manipulation Warning & Market History Fixes
Posted Jan. 28, 2019, 9:55 p.m.
Krabacus now attempts to detect market manipulation in your destination structures. This was a really big problem for routes such as Jita -> Amarr.
If a market is suspected of being manipulated, a yellow exclamation mark will show up next to its destination sell price in Eye of the Krab. It looks like this:
This mark will trigger if the item's price is higher than anybody has paid for the item in the past 30 days.
If you mouse over the indicator, it will tell you what the highest price anyone has paid for that item in the past 30 days is.
Note that this won't catch all instances of market manipulation, if someone buys a manipulated item at the manipulated price, the mark may not show up. In addition, if an items price is drastically increasing (but from natural causes), the mark may show up as well. I'm definitely going to work on improving this indicator in the near future to reduce false positives/negatives.
In other news, I'm aware of the issue with region market history updates falling behind (up to four days!). I'm testing a few fixes to address the issue. Fortunately, market history data very rarely changes by much, so data being up to a week old should not impact your trading.
Updates page & Performance fixes

Added an updates page (you're looking at it!) and fixed some performance issues with Eye of the Krab when certain filter parameters are used.
Have some cool features in the pipes that should be ready some time next week.
