1.1 application authorization - search api


The docs talk about:

Application authentication

This form of authentication is not yet supported. Stay tuned.

Can you tell me more about what’s planned? We have a big problem using 1.1 with our app which is windows exe based to populate our database with tweets. In 1.0, it works fine because we don’t authenticate so each IP gets it’s own rate limit. But when we have n instances of our app running by different customers, they’re all sharing one global rate limit making it impossible to use 1.1.

Is it possible that application authentication will ever give us unique rate limits per ip running our exe?
