Develop your own plugins for Construct using the C++ Plugin SDK. Since Construct is not finished yet, the SDK has the same version as Construct, 0.83.2.

The SDK is object-oriented and essentially involves writing an implementation of the CRunObject abstract class. Currently, only VC6 and VS2005 are supported, but it shouldn't be hard to port the SDK to other compilers, including free ones like Dev-C++ (there aren't any essential MS compiler specifics). If you port the SDK to another compiler, send me the files and I'll put it on the CVS :)

The SDK help needs work but should be along soon. If you have any questions or problems, feel free to ask.

Is there any chance of having the SDK's in different languages? I don't know C++ but am pretty good with Delphi.

Yes - so long as delphi is binary compatible with C++, and I've no idea if it is. It must be able to make virtual function calls in an identical way to C++, use C-style null terminated strings, and (the tricky one) be able to use a pointer to a member function the same way C++ does. I've no idea if any of this holds true for any other languages!
