Soo, many are really glad about this, but, as it stands this only changes one thing. That Greenworks has workshop support.
To shorten this as much as possible:
Greenworks is a Node Webkit module written for Node 0.10
Node Webkit has 2 branches, one with Node 0.10 and Old Chromium and one with Node 0.11 and New/Updated Chromium.
C2 uses the one with 0.11 as it's the most recent version that makes multiplayer for Node Webkit possible.
The reason nobody starts working on a C2 plugin is, that if such a plugin were made, only those using the old NW could use it. And nobody here wants a rollback.
It is not possible to use a Module that is written for 0.10 on 0.11 since there has been some API changes in Node that breaks compatibility.
A 0.11 will probably never come, but more likely a 0.12, they already began working on Node 0.13
We need somebody that updates Greenworks to be compatible with Node 0.11/0.12/0.13 so another one (Or the same) can write a Plugin for C2 to use it.

Since Steam is the biggest (?) digital distribution platform (worldwide?) it would be great if C2 would support the workshop, achievements or IAP (for DLCs). :)

Has anyone contacted Greenheart Games about hiring them (or the person they hired to create Greenworks) to update the Greenworks plug-in to be compatible with Node 0.11+?

There have been 5 games greenlit for Steam and another 30+ awaiting the Greenlight. So, if those 35+ developers and whoever else wants Greenworks each chipped in $100, there would be $3500+ to hire someone to update it.

Whoever updates the plug-in could use Kickstarter or IndieGoGo to make sure the money was pledged before they start work.

Thanks Ashley, been searching the forums for this answer.
