Yup. There’s no way Plurk will succeed without the API and, moreover, its adoption by the developer community. Its open API has been one of the strengths of Twitter, greatly extending its functionality.
I haven’t seen any news of the release at the time of writing…

Good post, thanks. I agree that the debate is not about one versus the other. These services are different, will appeal to different demographics and will evolve in different directions. Maybe one will come to dominate, as Google emerged to dominate search (there are parallels in the evolution of this technology). But another possibility is a consolidator function which will allow a user to microblog one time and send that to all the various applications.
